The Issues in National Security (INS) lectures are specifically designed to offer scholarly lectures to the spouses, partners, and significant others of our students; military/civilian employees assigned to the Naval War College and Naval Station Newport and its tenant activities; Foundation members; and local-area retirees or active/reserve personnel.
Participation is voluntary and neither reading assignments nor written requirements are required. In previous years these lectures were presented live in Pringle Auditorium. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, however, these lectures will be conducted on-line using the Zoom conferencing system. Livelectures may be reinstated when medical conditions allow.
Lectures will he held approximately every other week on Tuesday afternoons from 4:30 pm to 5:35 pm (followed by a 30-minute Family Discussion Group meeting for interested spouses).
There will be a total of 18 offered lectures during the period of September 2020 through May 2021. A link to the Zoom sessions will be posted by the Public Affairs Office one day prior to each lecture. These lectures are being offered to provide intellectual stimulation to the participants, and no formal academic credit will be awarded. Participants who complete at least 60% of the offered lectures can qualify to receive a Certificate of Participation at the end of the series.
