Cadet Staff SCUSA 68 
Command Team

Name: Lukas Miniutti
SCUSA Position: Commander
Class: 2017     
Major: International Relations
What I Like About SCUSA: I value the SCUSA experience for its academically and professionally challenging nature. On the academic side, for those involved in the actual execution of the SCUSA, the most striking aspect of the conference is just how tremendously brilliant are our civilian counterparts. At USMA, it is easy to become isolated from many of the thought-provoking topics that SCUSA covers. Professionally, SCUSA is an opportunity for the Cadet Staff to plan an internationally recognized conference for the nation’s top students in political science.

What I Like About SCUSA: It is a great opportunity for different groups of people to come together. The planning process brings together a diverse group of cadets and officers that has allowed me to grow as a person. The conference itself is so good at bringing together the civilian and military worlds to learn more about each other and how the other one thinks.  This conference has expanded my ability to think in new and creative ways about current events unlike any experience.

What I Like About SCUSA: SCUSA is the time for me to explore outside of my major. We have the opportunity to explore big questions that many of our peers never really consider. At the same time, you’re meeting and working with some of the highest achieving colleges across the country who challenge you to examine problems in new ways. In the end, we are all looking for a solution to whatever problem we’re tackling, and the people who come to SCUSA are incredibly supportive of each other in doing so.
