© 2020 The American College of National Security Leaders.
Inform. Influence. Inspire
The American College of National Security Leaders provides an experienced and non-partisan voice to increasingly polarized national security discussions. Our fellows are retired Admirals, Generals, Ambassadors and Senior Government Executives and our associates are retired career military, foreign service, and national security officials. Together, we are committed to strengthening the United States’ national security initiatives by informing the debate, influencing decision-makers, and educating the public.
We believe protecting our vital national interests requires strong global leadership. We support military might, a strong diplomatic service, and robust inter-agency capability. We recognize the complexities of balancing competing views on the U.S.’ role in the world and addressing threats both at home and abroad.
We are dedicated to inspiring the public and policymakers alike. We promote enduring, non-partisan whole-of-government and whole-of-society solutions to critical national security issues. We believe that through our collective professional experience our organization provides unique insights that the public and decision-makers need.
