Bush School Center For Grand Strategy Kick Off To Feature 16th NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe @ Annenberg Presidential Conference Center
Nov 28 @ 6:15 pm

By Erin Raftery, Texas A&M University Bush School of Government and Public Service

COLLEGE STATION, Nov. 13, 2018 — NATO’s 16th Supreme Allied Commander Europe, James Stavridis, will speak at the Texas A&M University Bush School of Government and Public Service to kick off the new Center for Grand Strategy (CGS). Stavridis will discuss the future of United States grand strategy.

The event will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 6:15 p.m. in the Annenberg Presidential Conference Center on the campus of Texas A&M University. Those interested in attending can register on the Bush School website. The event is free and open to the public.

The Center for Grand Strategy will serve as an intellectual hub for the critical examination of American grand strategy. Specifically, it will support research that takes a fresh look at America’s grand strategic choices, foster dialogue between scholars and practitioners, and help train a new generation of public servants who will be grand strategic innovators.

Stavridis spent 37 years in the Navy, rising to the rank of 4-star Admiral. Among his many commands were four years as the 16th Supreme Allied Commander at NATO, where he oversaw operations in Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, the Balkans, and piracy off the coast of Africa. He also commanded US Southern Command in Miami, charged with military operations through Latin America for nearly three years. He was the longest serving Combatant Commander in recent U.S. history. Following his military career, he served for five years as the 12th Dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. Today he serves as Chief International Security Analyst for NBC News; Operating Executive, The Carlyle Group; Chair, Board of Counselors of McLarty Global Associates.

CGS’s academic directors are Associate Professors Jasen Castillo and John Schuessler.
