Dear Colleagues, ****

 ****

On Thursday, September 8, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the David L.
Boren National Security Education Act of 1991. This act created the National
Security Education Program and the Boren Scholarships and Fellowships.****

** **

During the celebration, Senator David L. Boren, President of the University
of Oklahoma and author of the David L. Boren National Security Education Act
of 1991, and Dr. Clifford Stanley, Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel
and Readiness, addressed Boren Fellows, Scholars, members of the National
Security Education Board, and esteemed colleagues in the international
education arena. Both speakers highlighted the importance of language skills
and cultural understanding to developing international partnerships and
improving U.S. national security, praising NSEP for its commitment to
provide linguistic and cultural training for American students through the
Boren Scholarships and Fellowships.****

You can now view photos from the event, as well our 20th Anniversary video,
featuring Boren Scholars and Fellows and words from Dr. Stanley and Senator
