Since retiring, Bob DeGour has become a fixture at Eastern Shore schools as not only a U.S. Naval Academy Blue & Gold Officer but also the Founder/Director of a summer STEM camp for elementary school children whose instructors are middle and high school students. 


His never-tiring efforts to give back find him in and out of the schools mentoring young people and assisting with BioMed and Geopolitics courses. Since moving to the Eastern Shore, Bob has been invited to moderate the annual Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference roundtable on current strategic issues impacting the United States. 


Bob is a 1973 U.S. Naval Academy graduate and was the first midshipman to study concurrently in a civilian university post-graduate program. His classified thesis focused on socio-political systems in Pre-WWII Germany, the Soviet Union, and the Peoples Republic of China. He served in the Navy intel community before transitioning to the private sector.

Part 2 of this popular geo-political discussion group will continue with four more important global topics from the 2021 Great Decisions Briefing Book (available for an additional $10).
Discuss four of the eight important global topics in the 2021 Great Decisions Briefing Book (included). Look for Part II in the Fall 2021 semester offerings.
COURSE IS NOW OVER. RECORDING IS AVAILABLE. Join a discussion based on excerpts from the films “Stand and Deliver” and “The Ultimate Gift” to explore whether we are setting appropriate expectations for our nation’s next generations.
