The national security challenges facing the United States of America are complex and constantly evolving.  Too often the debate is dominated by the scramble for short-term political gain by institutions in Washington, DC, with too little input from the rest of the country or from our vast array of educational institutions.

The American Security Project (ASP) seeks to challenge this paradigm by partnering with universities in a program designed to elevate debate beyond partisan talking points into an earnest discussion of the national interest.

Meeting the Need

Future leaders at universities all across America need to be educated about a range of national security issues.

ASP aims to promote informed debate about the appropriate use of national power in order to cultivate strategic responses to 21st century challenges.

Today’s students require an understanding of the complexities of today’s global challenges – without being misled by empty rhetoric and cherry-picked facts.

ASP is able to provide universities access to this non-partisan strategic thinking.
