SBS: June 10
Today, US Army officers participating in the McConnell Center’s Strategic Broadening Seminar will continue their discussion of constitutionalism and national security. The officers will hear from Dr. Jasmine Farrier, author and political science professor at UofL, on national security in the context of the legislative, executive and judicial branches of government. After Farrier’s lecture, officers will divide into groups for a more in-depth discussion. Additionally, the officers will continue their discussion of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations with Book VI.
Hosted by the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville, the Strategic Broadening Seminar is a four-week intensive program intended to enhance the strategic thinking and leadership potential of some of the nation’s rising young military leaders. Drawing on the expertise of top UofL faculty and guest speakers from around the nation, 31 military officers will consider major questions in philosophy, ethics and constitutionalism, as well as recent developments within the Pacific Asia region. UofL is one of only two universities invited to direct such a strategic broadening seminar for the US Army in 2014.
