At the seminar cadets from 274 colleges and universities throughout the United States will participate in roundtable discussions on major national security issues with a leader that typically has an academic, military, or diplomatic background. Conducted annually in Lexington since 1978, the Marshall Leadership Seminar has included topics such as Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism and United States Foreign Policy in the Middle East.
