Purpose

The Project GO Annual Meeting is an opportunity for DoD staff, The Institute for International Education and participating universities to meet once a year and collaborate on ideas, initiatives and goals of the Project GO programs. It also provides opportunities to receive administrative and technical guidance regarding program policies.

Project GO (Global Officers) is a Department of Defense initiative aimed at improving the language skills, regional expertise, and intercultural communication skills of future military officers. Administered by the Institute of International Education on behalf of the Defense Language and National Security Education Office, IIE provides institutional grants to 25 U.S. universities across the country, including five of the six Senior Military Colleges. Working in support of Army, Air Force, and Navy ROTC strategies and policies, Project GO facilitates collaborative efforts among universities and between universities and ROTC leadership.
