Your most meaningful learning has involved deep exploration and thought on America’s role in the world. You’re excited to connect with others and revive a long overdue conversation about key issues in the foreign policy debate centered on a more careful, realistic global approach. If this sounds like you, keep reading. The John Quincy Adams Society (JQAS) is a national network of professionals, professors, and campus chapters focused on U.S. foreign policy, with a centering vision of strategic restraint – an America that “goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy,” in John Quincy Adams’ words.
Our campus chapters aim to help the next generation of national security leaders advance both intellectually and professionally while promoting a broader and more strategic conversation about America’s approach to international affairs. They stimulate meaningful discussions of foreign policy principles and practice through documentary screenings, tailor-made learning modules, and guest speakers like John Mearsheimer, Walter McDougall, and Andrew Bacevich. They build a community that becomes a launchpad for their careers.
We are looking for a self-driven candidate with a passion for the critical field of foreign policy to invigorate existing JQAS student chapters through strategic relationship building, identify and recruit new chapter leaders and faculty partners, and shepherd the success of chapters as a leading venue for foreign policy on their campuses. This is a perfect opportunity for former student leaders with a deep interest in foreign policy to build valuable professional skills and make connections that will propel them into a meaningful career.
