John Baldari


I am a Chief Warrant Officer with the United States Army completing my PhD in military applied ethics. In addition to a successful career in the field both at home and abroad, I taught for the US Army Warrant Officer Candidate School on the subjects of military ethics and mental resiliency, concepts which I pay forward to my academic career. I received my masters degree from the University of Nevada, where I was nominated for the Marshall Scholarship and winner of the Sentinels of Freedom scholarship. I studied under a full studentship from the IDEA Centre and previously held scholarships from the Horatio Alger Scholarship for Distinguished Americans and the American Legion, among others.

I am currently an assistant professor at Stratford University in the United States, with a research focus on feminist ethics and pedagogy.
