The Mike Rogers Center for Intelligence and Global Affairs seeks to develop tomorrow’s solutions to today’s national security and foreign policy challenges by bringing together thought leaders in government, business, and academia.
The challenges facing the United States and its security are growing in ways inconceivable only a few decades ago. While traditional state-based conflicts remain, they are being conducted on complex, and even new battlefronts: asymmetric or insurgent warfare, in space, and in cyberspace. New actors are also joining the fight – nation-state extremists, cyber criminals, hacktivists, and terrorists using the Internet for recruitment and propaganda – while old actors and adversaries are finding new ways to confront American power.
Finding solutions to today’s foreign policy and national security challenges, and anticipating the next generation of challenges and threats, requires innovative thinking and big, bold ideas that draw on of all elements of America’s power – economic ties, military strength, innovation and diplomacy.
Resident within the prestigious Center for the Study of the Presidency & Congress, the Center works with key stakeholders from across the policy spectrum, focusing on bringing together experts from within and outside government to develop actionable plans and recommendations.
Each aspect of the Center’s operations is aimed at developing solutions to today’s problems, identifying tomorrow’s challenges, all while being unconstrained by yesterday’s thinking.

Our country faces real challenges in this new century, but by working together we can find new and innovative solutions that will create a safe and prosperous future for America.Chairman Rogers
The Mike Rogers Center is solutions-based; merely highlighting today’s challenges is insufficient. It is about engagement, ideas, and execution to address the strategic challenges facing the United States.
Chairman Rogers’ approach to national security and foreign policy was honed throughout his experience in the U.S. Army, FBI, and in Congress. He brings with him unparalleled trust and respect across business, government, and security stakeholders, and a proven record of bipartisan solutions to legislative and policy challenges.
In Congress, and today, he bridged the gap between parties, working with his counterparts and government representatives to make impactful and needed changes to the Intelligence Community. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius remarked, Mike was “a rare example of bipartisanship.”
The United States is the greatest force for good and economic prosperity in the world; but we must work to preserve that. Since our beginning, America has been known for bringing about peace and prosperity through engagement, commerce, leadership and innovation. It is time to realign our business and government interests to further serve this founding principle.
Chairman Rogers was a 1985 graduate of Adrian College, commissioned officer in the U.S. Army, through the University of Michigan, FBI special agent and is married to Kristi Rogers. He has two children – a daughter and a son.
