This event is for Naval War College students, faculty and staff.

The 2018-2019 academic year will welcome about 530 joint service and international students during a convocation ceremony at the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) Aug. 13. The incoming resident class is comprised of members from the Navy, Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, as well as federal civilians and international students from 73 countries.

This event constitutes an important component of the in-residence program at NWC. NWC’s 10-month Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) programs have developed dedicated decision makers and problem solvers since 1884, making the college the oldest institution of its kind. In addition to students in residence, NWC’s distance education program graduates over 1,000 students each year. After rigorous study, students earn JPME credit and either a diploma or a master’s degree in National Security and Strategic Studies.

The ceremony will also serve as an opportunity to recognize retired Adm. Scott H. Swift as the recipient of NWC’s distinguished graduate leadership award.
