NEWPORT, R.I. – Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan W. Greenert will address students and faculty at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) in Newport, R.I., on Oct. 25 at 1:15 p.m.
He will discuss the importance of sea power, key focus points for today, and the Navy of tomorrow.
Approximately 600 mid-career level officers of the U.S. Navy, other U.S. services, civilian federal agencies, and international navies attend NWC’s residential course of postgraduate studies.
The NWC is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges to award qualified resident U.S. graduates with a Master of Arts degree in National Security and Strategic Studies and accredited by the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff to award Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) Phase I credit for the intermediate program and Phase II credit for the senior course. Graduates from the international programs receive an NWC diploma.
In addition to the college’s mission to educate and develop leaders, it is heavily involved in war gaming and research in an effort to aid the CNO in defining the path of the future Navy. More recently, the college has developed operational level courses to satisfy fleet requirements, preparing leaders for the challenges of operational and strategic level leadership over the remainder of their careers as decision makers and problem solvers.
