2016

Throughout 2016, Daniel Morgan Graduate School of National Security (DMGS) has had the incredible opportunity to host some of the most distinguished and influential thinkers, leaders, and practitioners as part of our National Security Lecture Series. While audio and video recordings of each lecture are available, DMGS is pleased to announce a new series of publications adapted from these extraordinary presentations – the 2016 Distinguished Speakers Collection.

As a compendium, these lectures address a host of national security challenges, past, present, and future. This collection is a small, but powerful example of graduate education at Daniel Morgan.
