Culture Change in the Department: Engaging Non-traditional Problem Solvers Through Collaboration


Dana Sanford
NSIN, NSIN Collaboration Portfolio Director

Dana Sanford is the Portfolio Director for NSIN's Collaboration Portfolio. The Collaboration Portfolio increases the intellectual diversity of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) by bringing together innovators from defense, academia, and the venture community to solve national security problems. The programs within the Collaboration Portfolio provide opportunities for service members to engage with non-traditional partners to better understand problems and discover new solutions.


“Innovation” is just change by another name. While change can be difficult, it’s also essential to progress. And those necessary changes are often realized through a shift in perspective or by adopting lessons learned from a parallel field. The DoD has acknowledged that. Now, it’s time to put that understanding into practice.

By creating spaces for students and service members to work together, NSIN is driving critical collisions and intellectual diversity into the DoD. Join us to learn how NSIN's Collaboration Portfolio connects the right people from across DoD, academia, venture, and beyond to better understand problems and discover new solutions — together.
