The National Defence University's Heritage Association strives to upkeep and develop the traditions of officer education and to increase a sense of belonging among university personnel.
The association also functions as an alumni organisation.
The association collects objects related to officer education for the benefit of future generations and organises events and trips that raise awareness of traditions. The association has a display room in Ritaritalo, one of the buildings on Santahamina Campus.
The Heritage Display Room
There is a display room showcasing the 200-year history and development of Finnish officer education in Ritaritalo, Santahamina Campus.
So as to reach as wide an audience as possible, the display room also functions as a meeting room and is used almost daily to hold meetings, presentations and lessons.
