The Center for the Study of Force and Diplomacy (CENFAD), founded in 1993 by Drs. Richard Immerman, Russell Weigley, and David Rosenberg, fosters interdisciplinary faculty and student research on the historic and contemporary use of force and diplomacy in a global context. CENFAD is housed within Temple University’s History Department.

CENFAD sponsors lectures, colloquia, and conferences on an ongoing basis; the International History Workshop; and various multi-year research projects. Each year, CENFAD also gives several prizes to recognize and support undergraduate and graduate research in military, diplomatic, and international history.

CENFAD reports its activities twice a year in its newsletter Strategic Visions Magazine.
