CWRU to Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas

CGSC conference room

The Command and General Staff College (CGSC) Foundation partners each year with the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College to host an ethics symposium at Fort Leavenworth. These symposia provide an opportunity for academics, practitioners, and military officers (from the United States and allied nations) who are studying at the Command and General Staff College to come together and discuss ethics relating to the profession of arms, the practice of state controlled violence, and national security. This year’s theme was maintaining human values in an era of new and emerging technology in the military.

Inamori Center Director and Inamori Professor in Ethics, Shannon E. French, is also the CGSC Foundations’s General Hugh Shelton Distinguished Visiting Chair of Ethics. At this year’s symposium, she was joined by Inamori Distinguished Scholar in Military Ethics Prof. Pauline Shanks Kaurin and Inamori Research Associate Dr. Jonathan A. French Flint, who all served as speakers for the event. In addition, three CWRU students enrolled in the Military Ethics master’s degree program also participated.
