Symposium on the All Volunteer Force

When the United States ended the draft and moved to an all-volunteer military in 1973, most political and military leaders assumed that if the United States again fought a major, long-lasting war the nation would reactivate the draft. But that didn’t happen: the U.S. fought the long and costly wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with an all-volunteer force (AVF), even as service members were deployed for multiple tours of duty. This symposium, in the wake of those wars, evaluates the AVF. How well has it worked? Will it work in the future?

On April 27, 2017, key national policy makers, former government officials, military officers, and scholars who have drawn different conclusions about the relative successes and failures of the AVF will gather at William & Mary to hold a frank conversation about a critical piece of our national defense.

"13 Must-Have Words to Include in Your Resume"

We’ve all read about what not to include in a resume. However, it’s time to talk about what words should be included in your resume.

"3 Questions Hiring Managers Always Ask (Themselves) About You"

What do hiring managers look for?

This question comes up for job seekers everywhere. Constantly. Wishing you could read minds? You may not have to- you just need to know the questions hiring managers ask themselves when deciding on a new hire.

Humanitarian Crisis/International Development Simulation!

On May 24-25, 2017, the Joint Forces Staff College will be conducting a practical exercise to reinforce for our students the processes and considerations involved in a Department of Defense response to a humanitarian crisis scenario. The fictional scenario will include a series of natural disasters in and around the nation of Cameroon, with associated effects on the nations of Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.


We are seeking the support of graduate students (or exceptional undergraduates) to serve as non-governmental organization (NGO) and United Nations role players. If you volunteer you will be interacting with US and multi-national military officers, and with mid to high-level civilians from Department of Defense agencies, who are enrolled in our graduate-level program. Although you will not be paid to participate, you will receive a certificate of completion and invaluable experience. You do not need any experience or special knowledge in these areas to participate. We will teach you what you need to know for the roles.


All volunteers must be vetted through the Department of Defense. Vetting for US citizens is fairly simple. Vetting for students from other nations varies in degree of difficulty, the amount of information required, and lead time required. If you are interested, please e-mail Lieutenant Colonel Tim Cox at timothy.j.cox.mil@gc.ndu.edu and Assistant Professor Mary Bell at mary.s.bell@gc.ndu.edu as soon as possible.
