Diversity Issues in the Army as Perceived by Army Students at the United States Army War College.
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
The scope of this strategic research project developed from a minor rift between the Black and White officers in the United States Army War College USAWC Class of 1997. The rift arose over the possible depiction of the Confederate Battle Flag in a Civil War print that the Class commissioned. This flag issue, as well as other class discussions on social and domestic programs, highlighted significant differences of opinion between Blacks and Whites on equal opportunity, affirmative action, welfare, and other related programs. In recognizing this diversity, this paper identifies some diversity issues within the Army, analyzes the perception of those diversity issues by the resident Army students in the USAWC Class of 1997 the future strategic leaders of the Army, and recommends strategies for eliminating or reducing any negative effects which may result from these differences of perception.
