West Point-Bard Exchange. WPBE is designed to provide opportunities for students and faculty from Bard and West Point to exchange ideas in the classroom, during public presentations and in informal settings.
About the West Point-Bard Exchange
In the program's first year, Bard and West Point students took joint seminars each semester on international relations theory taught by Jonathan Cristol, Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Studies at Bard College, and Scott Silverstone, Associate Professor of International Relations at the United States Military Academy. The classes met jointly several times during term, with Bard students visiting West Point and cadets traveling to Annandale-on-Hudson. In the fall, Silverstone gave a well-attended public lecture at Bard entitled 'Preventive War, American Democracy, and the Challenge of a Shifting Threat Environment.' In May, six Bard seniors attended West Point's Project's Day, and presented the findings of their senior theses to West Point faculty and cadets
