Bradley University Student Represented at West Point Academy
December 19, 2019
Hunter Driggers, a senior International Studies and French major, had the chance of a lifetime recently as he was chosen to represent Bradley at West Point at the Student Conference on U.S. Affairs (SCUSA).
West Point hosts the SCUSA every fall. It is the oldest and largest conference of its type and is attended by approximately 200 undergraduate students from over 125 colleges and universities worldwide. The four-day conference provides a foundation for strong civil-military relationships among future leaders in the military and public policy. Attendees participate in roundtables that focus on substantive issues or regions of the world. Each round table is co-chaired by a scholar and a policymaker who serve as sources and information as these bright students take the lead working a team to develop and write a group policy paper. High profile leaders and policymakers are invited for evening programming (lectures and panels), which give the students additional information to draw from as they create their papers, which they must present publicly on the last day of the conference.
Bradley's Department of Political Science and Institute of International Studies select the Bradley University student delegate on a rotating basis.
