Taking notes, reviewing case studies, and participating in class seminars doesn’t seem like a typical day for a U.S. soldier. But that’s how 30 U.S. Army soldiers from across the country spent their September – at the University of Louisville’s Strategic Broadening Seminar.
The seminar, sponsored by UofL’s McConnell Center, is a series of intensive classes that cover a range of subjects including history, political philosophy and constitutional law. The Army’s goal is to have their mid-career soldiers learn how to think beyond tactics and the battlefield.
“It’s probably one of the best military opportunities I’ve had,” said Captain Sam Spencer-Pittman, one of the participating soldiers.
UofL’s McConnell Center was one of five places around the globe that was chosen to host this program. Gary Gregg, the director of the McConnell Center, said that: “it’s a great testament to the kind of faculty we have on campus, and to our Army-friendly environment at the University of Louisville.”
