What we're about
DSI is a premier non-partisan Institute designed to assist in advancing the mission critical goals of the United States' Military and Government. Through our high level educational training summits and symposiums we are able to reach across all offices and departments in a fair and balanced manner. We bring together the mission relevant representatives in our neutral “Town Hall” forums in order to foster the necessary discussions and debates to help them achieve efficient and effective mission success.
