HAYS, KS -- Two Fort Hays State University political science students recently participated in the 43rd Annual Air Force Academy Assembly held from Feb. 26-March 2.
Each year, the Political Science and Justice Studies Department sends two students to this conference in an effort to promote awareness of the increasing importance of international relations and globalization. This year Joshua Precht, Goodland junior, and Kelli Glassman, Salina senior, were selected.
Precht and Glassman were joined by other college students from throughout the United States and Canada to discuss U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. The conference concluded with a reflective paper on the ideas shared by the participants.
This paper will be sent to the Pentagon and other interested institutions.
"The conference was a great way to observe and understand the framework through which diplomacy and foreign policy is implemented," Glassman said.
