The Adams Alumni Center recently welcomed more than 30 U.S. Army officers and civilians for a three-week “strategic broadening seminar,” hosted by the Office of Graduate Military Programs and the School of Business’ Center for Business, Industry and National Security.

The University of Kansas was one of only four civilian universities in the nation to host the event, which prepares individuals to confront the national security challenges of the 21st century through a series of individual, organizational and global leadership courses taught by KU researchers and business leaders.

“The experience and the growth in their leadership ability is a direct outcome,” says Steve Leonard, director of National Security Programs at the School of Business. “That’s something that goes on their official file. They have a skillset that’s assigned to it for the rest of their careers.”
