U.S. Army War College Students to Speak

March 03, 2014

ALLIANCE, Ohio – Members of the U.S. Army War College, through the Eisenhower Series College Program (ESCP), will lead a discussion at 5:30 p.m. on March 13 in the East Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center at the University of Mount Union.

Participants of the U.S. Army War College annually engage in the ESCP, an academic outreach program designed to encourage dialogue between the military and the public in hopes of creating a stronger understanding of the armed forces.

This year’s panelists will include Lt. Col. Paul “Tim” Brooks, information operations officer; Col. Michael J. Daniels, U.S. Army engineer; Lt. Col. Deydre Teyhen, PT, Ph.D., U.S. Army Specialist Corps; Lt. Col. Stephen K. Van Riper, U.S. Marine Corps infantry and Ann Wood, Department of the Army civilian.

A wide variety of topics will be discussed by panelists and will include the U.S. Asia-Pacific strategy, the role of military leaders in shaping the National Will, what climate change means for the military, Army medicine, military medical research, sexual assault in the military and national security and the federal budget. In addition to presenting the discussion, members of the War College will spend a day speaking to Mount Union students.

Dr. Larry D. Miller, director of communicative arts at the college and Alliance native, believes there is a communication disconnect between the men and women in the military and the general public.

The Eisenhower Series College Program was established in 1969 as a United States Army War College academic outreach program. It is provided at no cost to the hosting institutions and encourages dialogue on national security matters and other public policy issues between students at the Army's senior educational institution and public at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

This is the fourth year Mount Union has showcased this event.

The event will be sponsored by the Ralph and Mary Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement.

The discussion is free to the public, but requires an RSVP by March 10. To RSVP, contact Abby Honaker, assistant director of the Ralph and Mary Regula Center, at honakeal@mountunion.edu or (330) 829-8168. For more information, contact Honaker.
