Political Science Major Attends Air Force Conference

Political Science major Cassandra Wade recently attended the 51st annual Air Force Academy Undergraduate Student Conference. The topic for this year’s Academy Assembly was “Building the Bridge from War to Peace: Defining Interagency Roles in Rebuilding a Nation.” Each day, student delegates listened to experts in various fields and immediately thereafter engaged in a roundtable discussion with members representing both civilian and military personnel. The roundtables urged delegates to discuss when war ends and when reconstruction begins, as well as the responsibilities of military and civilian agencies in effectively repairing a war ravaged area. After the conference, Wade commented that “the arguments were intense and enlightening; the Assembly made me realize that international relations is most definitely the career that I want to pursue.”
