Award-sponsored research areas included testing a participatory research mapping tool to improve U.S. soldier human geography worldwide modeling cultural landscapes and water resources in Afghanistan and enhancing access to free skills-building information on community development for the Middle East and North African MENA Region through a community development toolbox. In addition to scientific research, KU delivered education programs in support of DOD 1 an MA program focusing on interagency collaboration for US SOF officers who attend the Army s Command and General Staff College 2 a graduate business program that educates U.S. logisticians on understanding the military supply chain through a broader, civilian economy focus and 3 a pre-command leadership development program that teaches U.S. Army officers an understanding of strategy, external environment, and strategic thinking in the U.S. corporate world. In addition to advanced degree programs, a fellowship supported the Foreign Military Studies Office at Fort Leavenworth in academic research which would otherwise go unstudied. Because of these educational programs and research initiatives, KU has provided soldiers and the Army with advanced academic preparedness for, and new understandings of, future operating environments.
