The Center provides academic advising for the North Atlantic Security Studies minor/certificate program, support for a course on NATO and coordinates participation by Kent State University students in the National Model NATO Conference.  More recently, the Center has become an Associate of the Parallel History Project on NATO and the Warsaw Pact (PHP).
