Abstract

At the Army Command and General Staff College’s Ethics Symposium at Fort Leavenworth in April of 2016, work titled “Responding to Sexual Violence in Conflict” was presented. The purpose of this submission to the Academic Excellence Conference is to provide insight into the challenges, both academic and personal, that arose while preparing a piece for presentation at the symposium and publication in the subsequent journal. For an undergraduate, civilian, female to present to military personnel on the topic of sexual violence was a daunting task which called for strong academic work as well as strong character. A reflection upon the process required for such a task to be completed will allow for the author to highlight the obstacles (i.e. completing publication ready work, perfecting presentation skills, etc.) faced in order for an undergraduate to present alongside graduate and doctoral scholars.
