16Field Studies Program (IMSD Execution) ~ 40 discreet events per CGSS IMS cohortLimited impact on other instruction: *3 multi-day RON events:“Wichita” trip (3 day/2 night)Fort Riley/KSU (2 day/1 night)Gettysburg/DC (9 day/8 night)The majority of our FSP events are held during the Prep Courses, in the evenings, or on weekends….The luncheons “impact” no more than 1 hour each – and are scheduled around published lunch breaks….The multi-day events require detailed coordination with governmental agencies and Fortune 500 business leaders. They are sometimes directed (as with DC) and always require contractual commitments many months in advance of execution….Creating “Aha!” moments….
