Discover NPS Day is an open-campus event designed to demonstrate how the Naval Postgraduate School accomplishes its unique mission of defense-focused graduate education to our friends, collaborators, and community and business leaders across the entire Monterey Peninsula. Among other things, planned events include several displays of science and technology in action through a variety of STEM activities, in addition to a live address from one of the university’s graduates currently serving as a NASA astronaut.

We also hope to engage other sectors of our regional population, with relevant, topical keynote and breakout lectures by world-renowned experts from our faculty ranks and beyond.

More information to follow as this unique event takes shape ... Mark your calendars, December 1, for Discover NPS Day.
