WHITTIER, Calif., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southern California University of Health Sciences (SCU), the nation's leading post-graduate college for chiropractic, acupuncture and oriental medicine, has announced that University President, Dr. John Scaringe, has been selected by the U.S. Army War College to participate in its 59th Annual U.S. Army War College National Security Seminar.
The important gathering, taking place June 2-6, 2013 at the Carlisle Barracks, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, is the capstone for a 10 month full-time program for military personnel from across the United States and internationally. In a series of focused seminars, military graduates receive insightful civilian perspective from an array of diverse individuals from throughout the United States selected to provide unique points of view and expertise to help shape future national security agendas.
The annual National Security Seminar is also designed to heighten military officers' understanding of the society they serve and the interests, issues, and trends that help shape the formulation of national security policy.
As the President of an accredited university, Dr. Scaringe was selected as 1 of 160 distinguished representatives, chosen from over 3,500 submitted candidates. Each year, the War College Seminar reaches out to prominent civilian leaders from communities across America to provide a special opportunity for military graduates to interact and glean a keen understanding of the communities that they will eventually serve. The 160 individuals represent a diverse cross-section of expertise and perspective for the military graduates to interact with as they work to become leaders shaping the nation's future security needs.
"I'm extremely honored to be invited to participate in the U.S. Army War College National Security Seminar for 2013," says Dr. Scaringe. "A multitude of issues related to the larger topic of national security are of the utmost concern in these often uncertain times. I look forward to the opportunity to share my knowledge and insight with military graduates."
Seminar members represent a broad cross-section of American citizens who have achieved success in various career fields and who have had extensive personal contact with a broad cross-section of American society. The 160 selected distinguished members have each been selected based on their background, experience and commitment to our Nation's well-being to provide a unique outlook on important issues.
The U.S. Army War College's mission is to educate and develop leaders for service at the strategic level while advancing knowledge in the global application of Landpower. The purpose of the US Army War College is also to act as a "Think Factory" for Commanders and Civilian Leaders at the strategic level worldwide and to routinely debate ground forces' ongoing role to achieve national security objectives. The War College is the U.S. Army's senior educational institution and the home of strategic thought for the Army, and is considered one of the world's preeminent military institutions. The presence of over 70 international fellows in the Class of 2013 attests to the quality of its curriculum. Founded in 1901 by Secretary of War Elihu Root, the U.S. Army War College was originally located at Fort McNair in Washington D.C. and was moved in 1951 to its current campus at Carlisle Barracks.
