Mr. Andrew B. Mitchell, a career Foreign Service Officer, will lead the discussion in the next InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture at 12:30 p.m., Nov. 14, in the Arnold Conference Room of the Lewis and Clark Center on Fort Leavenworth.
Mitchell will lead a discussion on the United States Department of State. His presentation will include information on the department and how it operates both as an important element of the U.S. national security team, as well as how it conducts foreign policy as the face of our nation around the world.
The InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series, co-hosted by the CGSC Foundation’s Simons Center with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff School (CGSS), was initiated in September 2016 and is an extracurricular, interagency topic-focused series that is designed to enhance and enrich the CGSS curriculum. The presentations are scheduled each month. – The next lecture is Dec. 12 and will feature a presentation from Larry Hisle from the Federal Executive Board in Kansas City.
All lectures in the InterAgency Brown-Bag Lecture Series are free and open to the public. As the series moniker states, the lecture series is conducted in the traditional “brown-bag lunch” format. – Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunches into the conference room. Members of the public coming to the lectures from off-post will need to add extra time to check-in at the Fort Leavenworth visitor center. – For visitor information, see https://garrison.leavenworth.army.mil/index.php/my-fort/all-services/gate-information.
The CGSC Foundation and the Simons Center have received support for all brown-bag lectures in academic year 2018 from First Command Financial Services in Leavenworth, Kansas.
