ACADEMIC RESEARCH PROGRAM

PARTNERING WITH SSI

Through its Strategic Engagement Program, SSI collaborates with premier universities and research institutes to examine key strategic issues identified by the Army and the Joint Community. SSI and its partners study these issues at academic colloquia which bring together renowned subject matter experts from academia, government, and industry. The resultant publications inform policy makers and senior military staff. Past university partners include Harvard, Duke, Georgetown, Princeton, Oxford, Columbia, Queen’s, Miami, Chicago, and research centers including the Brookings Institute and the National Bureau of Asian Research. Conference co-sponsors have included U.S. PACOM, U.S. SOUTHCOM, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Army. Read more about partnering with SSI.
