We did it!

Dear Friends and newest Anciens of the NATO Defense College,
We did it!

I am so proud of Senior Course 136, the Faculty, staff, and supporters of the College who made graduation this week possible! Each course is unique in its own way but no one could have expected COVID-19 to affect us the way it did. Senior Course 136 is likely to go down in the history of the College as its most resilient class. COVID-19 challenged the College in many ways, but staying the course, delivering the Senior Course curriculum on-line for three months and getting SC 136 “across the finish line” this week was an incredible demonstration of adaptability, grit, and cohesion.
