Hamilton Student Attends Conference at West Point
Max Currier ’10, a government major participating in Hamilton’s program in New York City, attended the 61st Annual Student Conference on U.S. Affairs (SCUSA 61) at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point on Nov. 4-7. This year’s theme was “Advancing as a Global Community: Scarcity, Instability, and Opportunity.” About 180 undergraduates attended from across the United States.
The conference was divided into 16 roundtable discussions. Currier‘s discussion group, “Whole of Government Approaches to Instability and Scarcity,” assembled 11 delegates and two distinguished practitioners as co-chairs. The roundtable met for four days and held numerous discussion sessions to draft insightful policy recommendations.
SCUSA is a 4-day conference held annually at The United States Military Academy at West Point. The purpose of the conference is to facilitate interaction and constructive discussion between student delegates in order for them better understand the intricacies of the challenges that the United States faces in a global society. The product is a policy proposal to be shared with the rest of the conference and beyond through a new partnership with the Undergraduate Journal of Social Sciences.
Currier is currently serving an internship as editorial assistant at World Policy Journal.
