About the Whole of Government Center of Excellence

Amidst intensifying globalization, sound security policies require the collaboration of multiple branches of the U.S. military and civilian government agencies, among others.

The mission of the William & Mary Whole of Government Center of Excellence is to educate and train a new generation of future leaders who have hands-on, practical experience working across the different organizational cultures that must be harmonized in order to facilitate true interagency collaboration long before finding themselves forced to deal with such issues during a foreign deployment or national emergency.
