About the Boren Forum
The Boren Forum is an alumni group organized by and for award recipients of the National Security Education Program (NSEP). If this is your first visit or you would like more information about the Boren Forum, please be sure to read our Frequently Asked Questions.
We aim to promote the educational, social, and career development of NSEP award recipients upon return to the United States, and to enhance and expand public service opportunities through mutually beneficial partnerships among alumni and other organizations.
History of the Boren Forum
A group of NSEP alumni living in the Washington D.C. area met with NSEP administrators in 2002 to discuss forming an alumni association. The alumni agreed to form a Steering Committee to begin incorporating the group into a nonprofit organization and rounding up other interested alumni. The Boren Forum was incorporated as a nonprofit in February 2003.
The Board of Directors
The Boren Forum is guided by a Board of Directors made up of alumni. All board members commit to serving for one year with the option of serving an additional year without having to formally reapply. The Board of Directors meets monthly in the DC-area to plan events, raise funds, manage the website, and facilitate networking. New Board members are recruited each October and begin serving their terms in January.
