“KU partners with the CGSC Foundation in myriad ways,” said Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox. “They’ve partnered with us in support of our Distinguished Speaker Series, including the DACOR Visiting Professor of Diplomacy program and the Interagency Brown-Bag Lecture Series. They’ve been our partner for leadership symposia in the past and we’re currently in discussions with them to expand in that area.”
Cox added that the KU Chancellor, Dr. Douglas A. Girod, attended the Foundation’s National Security Roundtable Program in fall 2018. He also said the KU Director of Military Graduate Programs Col. (USMC Ret.) Michael Denning, includes the Foundation in many programs and events they host at their various campus locations in Lawrence, Overland Park and Leavenworth. Participation in these events raises visibility of the Foundation and simultaneously enhances the educational experience of CGSC faculty and students. KU has also provided adjunct faculty to CGSC for Command and General Staff School elective courses.
