The Johns Hopkins/SAIS Philip Merrill Center for Strategic Studies was founded in 2004 with a generous gift from the Merrill Family Foundation. The Philip Merrill Center has been a primary resource for the John Hopkins SAIS community and beyond, promoting strategic thought and education, along with dialogue and scholarship on major national security and defense issues. It aims to promote discussion and innovative research on the central and emerging issues of national security.
As a center for strategic thinking, the Merrill Center focuses on bringing practitioners, scholars, journalists, and other experts to explore the substance and practical consequences of key issues. With this aim, the Merrill Center sponsors conferences and small seminars on contemporary and future security issues. It leads workshops and training to foster strategic thinking on the broad challenges the United States faces today and, in the years, ahead.
As a center for education, it brings outside speakers to the Johns Hopkins SAIS community and supports graduate students' extracurricular activities, speaker series, internships, trainings, and other sources of experiential learning.
