George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies
GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany (Feb. 12, 2020) – More than 20 students from the University of Applied Sciences in Neu-Ulm, Germany, visited the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies Feb. 12.
German Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Mark Winkler, Marshall Center’s German public affairs non-commissioned officer, explained the mission of the Marshall Center.
Then, Professor Dr. Ralf Roloff, the Marshall Center’s deputy dean for resident programs, talked about global security threats and challenges.
The German-American partnership of the Marshall Center afforded the students a chance to enjoy an American cheeseburger at the Marshall Center Dining Facility on Artillery Kaserne. The dining facility is where the Marshall Center program participants eat breakfast, lunch and dinner during courses and more importantly, to get to know each other to form long-lasting relationships.
The visit was part of the Neu-Ulm University’s Winter School, which is organized by Professor Dr. Michael Gutiérrez and covers international and environmental issues in the economy.
Winkler coordinates about 25 tours a year for Bundeswehr, and local schools and universities.
