Carolina is expanding its digital learning platforms and educating students about the practice and theory of U.S. diplomacy.

The American Academy of Diplomacy (AAD) and UNC-Chapel Hill are collaborating on the production of The General and the Ambassador, a well-recognized podcast series that focuses on how senior U.S. military leaders partner with senior U.S. ambassadors on national security challenges overseas.

The Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs and the College of Arts & Sciences are partnering with the AAD on this project as part of a wider initiative to strengthen UNC-Chapel Hill’s capacity for educating students about the practice and theory of U.S. diplomacy and to expand Carolina’s digital learning platforms. The series covers U.S. engagement in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Horn of Africa, Greece, Russia, Georgia, the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Haiti, Latin America and more.

Associated programming will be presented as part of Diplomatic Discussions, a series organized by the Office of the Vice Provost for Global Affairs, which brings diplomats and foreign relations experts to UNC-Chapel Hill to discuss important issues in diplomacy and international affairs.

“Diplomacy affects Americans from wars to consumer prices but what really goes on in diplomacy, what the work is like, is a mystery to most. I’m delighted that our partnership with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill aids our joint mission of education and understanding,” said Ambassador Ronald Neumann, president of the American Academy of Diplomacy and former U.S. ambassador to Algeria, Bahrain and Afghanistan.
