Biographical / Historical
The Alliance Linking Leaders in Education and the Services (ALLIES) is an undergraduate organization that works to bridge the civil-military gap, foster lasting relationships between future civilian and military leaders, and improve general discourse and understanding of global affairs. Three Tufts students – Peter Maher (‘07), Susannah Hamblin (‘07), and Padden Murphy (‘09) – cofounded ALLIES in 2006. Tufts ALLIES’ three original partner institutions were the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs. As of 2018, seven schools have active chapters, and several others are in development. In addition to holding weekly discussion meetings, Tufts ALLIES hosts two major annual events: the Civil-Military Relations Conference (CMRC), and the Field Exercise in Peace and Stability Operations (FieldEx). Tufts also partners with other ALLIES chapters on the annual Joint Research Project (JRP).
