At the start of March, the Executive Master's in Leadership Program welcomed its 10th cohort for an opening residency at the Gettysburg Battlefields in Pennsylvania. Twenty-four students representing the government, non-profit, entrepreneurship, and financial services industries met to discuss Answering the Call: Strategy, Mobilization, Execution – and the Aftermath. The new class was welcomed by McDonough faculty members Catherine Tinsley, and Luc Wathieu, who also is the school's deputy dean. Army Historian, Steve Carney led discussions on the battlefields, with support from Jennifer Tokar, an alumna from the inaugural cohort, who helped with orientation and facilitated talks on leadership.
