Seminar XXI: Educating U.S. National Security Leaders The Coast Guard is seeking officers for Seminar XXI, a nine-month program presented by Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) that gives military leaders a one-of-a-kind global platform to advance their national security knowledge.

Comprised of a series of sessions led by distinguished faculty from global universities, Seminar XXI uses a multidimensional analytical approach to equip participants with a framework to think critically about policy-making and foreign relations. The program is an extended “deep-dive” into foreign policy and national security, putting Coast Guard officers face-to-face with global experts in the field.

"Seminar XXI gave me an insightful basis to inform Coast Guard strategic decisions in the coming years, as well as a network of colleagues placed throughout the national security and foreign policy leadership in Washington,” said CDR. William Woityra, who is currently enrolled in the program.

Upon completion, participants receive a certificate from MIT.
