Minerva Project : Cadet Club

Minerva Cadet Club 
 
Mission statement: "Provide an environment for service members, civilians, and cadets from a variety of disciplines to learn from each others' expertise and gain a better understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral, and political forces relevant to a career of public service." ~ 2014
 
The club meets weekly during the academic year and invites civilian and military faculty from a range of departments to discuss their work, experiences and how they relate both to the Army's mission and other forms of public service.
