KSU hosts national security conference

Former secretary of the Navy and NASA administrator Sean O’Keefe will be the keynote speaker at a two-day symposium on national security, Feb. 24-25, at Kennesaw State University.

The “Conflict Management: A Tool for U.S. National Security” conference will feature about 100 military experts and policy makers discussing intergovernmental and humanitarian cooperation in resolving world conflicts that threaten national security.

The event is hosted by KSU and the Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College. The forum is the first type of event at KSU since the university launched its doctoral degree program in international conflict management last year.

The symposium begins at 4 p.m. Feb. 24 and 8:30 a.m. Feb. 25, and is free to attend; a working lunch is $10. Discussions will be held in KSU’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences Building #22, Rooms, 1019 and 1021, 1000 Chastain Rd. in Kennesaw.
