Leadership and the Challenges of National Security

The Sol Price School of Public Policy recently hosted, “The George Washington Leadership Series: Leadership and the Challenges of National Security.” During his presidency, George Washington outlined his vision for national security. How has his vision manifested more than 200 years later?

The panel discussion featured Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist David Sanger, Anti-Defamation League Associate Director Ariella Lowenstein and SCI Director Dr. Erroll Southers, and was moderated by Price School Professor David Sloane.
