Kosal Selected as an Adjunct Scholar to the Modern War Institute at West Point
Margaret Kosal, an associate professor in Georgia Tech’s Ivan Allen College Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, has been selected as a non-resident adjunct scholar to the Modern War Institute at West Point. As an adjunct scholar, she will leverage her research on topics relevant to modern war and national security, particularly with regards to the role of technology in military operations.
According to its mission statement, the Modern War Institute (MWI) at West Point is a national resource within the Department of Military Instruction that studies recent and ongoing conflicts to prepare present and future leaders to win in a complex world. Leveraging the intellectual capital unique to West Point, the MWI faculty members use a research, educate, and integrate model to remain academically grounded, operationally connected to the force, and fully engaged with cadets and the military program curriculum. As such, the MWI directly enhances the quality of cadet military education and training through scholarship, multi-disciplinary contemporary battlefield assessments, symposia, curriculum updates and relevancy, academy outreach, and strategic communications.
