About Regional Alumni Symposia
Symposia include keynote speeches by prominent military leaders and faculty-led panels addressing current strategic and operational issues. All participants are invited to exchange their insights and perspectives.
Symposia also serve to foster professional interaction among rising military leaders and allow graduates to take advantage of and foster the “Newport Connection” across many classes. This networking develops professional linkages among military officers at critical junctures in their careers when international relationships proves invaluable. World events continue to confirm the value of working with partners and friends.
U.S. Naval War College (NWC) Regional Alumni Symposia (RAS) are events co-hosted by the President of the NWC and a regional partner navy. Participation is open to all international and U.S. graduates of the college.
Our Regional Alumni Symposia have taken place in many areas around the globe, including Brazil, Germany, Peru, The Philippines, Oman, and at the NWC campus in Newport, Rhode Island.
