In a September 3 town hall meeting on campus, Colin Kahl answered questions from students on the potential U.S. military response to the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war. About 130 members of the Marymount community attended as Dr. Kahl took questions for just over an hour. Colin Kahl is a professor of Security Studies at Georgetown University and a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for the Middle East.
Last week, a group of 13 Marymount students visited the State Department to attend an hour-long briefing with two officials from the Bureau of African Affairs to learn about U.S. efforts to combat the Lord’s Resistance Army in Central Africa. Three students (including Jon Couch, pictured below) asked questions.
