Overview of Programs 2 Federal Executive Institute: Leadership in a Democratic Society Charlottesville, VA The Federal Executive Institute (FEI) uses the U.S. Constitution as the principal guide in helping participants understand the diverse goals of the government and the citizens they serve. FEI fosters executives who excel in a 21st-century world while remaining connected to the Constitutional principles forged in the 18th century. The themes of FEI's Leadership for a Democratic Society (LDS) program reflect and enhance the Constitutional underpinning of Federal Government work and the common culture of senior Federal executives. At FEI, participants build skills in personal leadership and gain insights into organizational theory, the policy framework in which Government leadership occurs, and the broad global trends and events that shape government agendas. Since 1968, FEI has been known for the personal attention it gives to every executive who attends its programs. FEI's approach builds a learning community where Federal executives and faculty are both teachers and participants. The LDS program is custom designed to fit the particular interests of each participant through individual feedback, small- and large-group sessions, one-on-one coaching from a faculty facilitator and assistance from program colleagues in a small Leadership Development Team. https://www.leadership.opm.gov/Locations/FEI/FAQ/LDS/index.aspx SSC: National Defense University Washington, DC To educate future leaders of the Armed Forces, State Department, and other civilian agencies for high-level policy, command, and staff responsibilities by conducting a senior-level course of study in national security strategy. A common core program is required of all students. It provides grounding in national security strategy and policy, and military strategy and operations. The core curriculum focuses on the domestic and international contexts in which national security policy is developed, national security organizations and decision-making processes, and the formulation and implementation of military strategy. The College conducts a field studies program throughout the year. The program begins soon after the start of the academic year when students register preferences to study particular regions of the world. The program builds throughout the year and culminates in May, with a multiple-day visit to the region, where students meet with key leaders, foreign affairs officials and senior military commanders to study first-hand their security concerns, military capabilities, and perceptions of U.S. policy.
Overview of Programs 3 SSC: Industrial College of the Armed Forces Washington, DC The Industrial College of the Armed Forces is a 10-month residential senior service school providing graduate level education to senior members of the US armed forces, government civilians, foreign nationals, and private industry. These future executives will be better prepared for leadership and success in developing national security strategy and policy, with a focus on evaluating, marshaling, and managing national resources. Courses of study include: national security studies, strategic leadership, economics, military strategy and logistics, acquisition, and regional security studies. Also includes a one-of-a-kind capstone study of industry that requires the development of a strategic perspective on the U.S. and global industrial base and its role in supporting the resource requirements of national security. SSC: College of Naval Warfare Newport, RI The College of Naval Warfare is a 10 month residential, multidisciplinary program designed for U.S. Naval and Coast Guard officers in the grades of captain or commander, U.S. Marine Corps, Army, and Air Force officers in the grades of colonel or lieutenant colonel, and civilians of equivalent seniority from various federal agencies. This senior-level professional military education program provides students with executive-level preparation for higher responsibilities as senior captains/colonels and flag/general officers. The core course work for the senior and intermediate resident programs consists of three trimesters of study, plus three electives, one per each trimester. The senior course consists of three equal trimesters of about thirteen weeks each. The intermediate course has one longer trimester of 17 weeks for the study of joint maritime operations and two other 11 week trimesters. SSC: Air War College Montgomery, AL Air War College is a 10-month graduate-level program to prepare students to lead in a joint environment at the strategic level across the range of military operations; to develop cross-domain mastery of joint air, space, and cyberspace power and its strategic contributions to national security; and to advance innovative thought on National Security, Department of Defense, and Air Force issues. Courses of study include: Joint Strategic Leadership, National Security Decision Making, Foundations of Strategy, Warfighting, Regional and Cultural Studies, Global Security, and Global Challenge Wargame.
Overview of Programs 4 SSC: U.S. Army War College Carlisle, PA The U.S. Army War College (USAWC) prepares selected military, civilian, and international leaders for the responsibilities of strategic leadership in a joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational environment. The Senior Level College is delivered as a 10-month residential program. Curriculum challenges participants to: Use strategic thought processes to evaluate the national security challenges and opportunities facing the United States in the 21st Century; Evaluate the theory of war and strategy; Evaluate DOD, joint, interagency, intergovernmental, multinational, and NGO processes and relationships, including Army contributions to the nation in peace and war; Evaluate the role of land power in joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational operations, etc.. SSC: Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy Fellowship Boston, MA As the oldest graduate school of international affairs in the United States, The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy is distinctive for its collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach. Fletcher’s flexible curriculum, distinguished faculty, and accomplished community of students and alumni provide a thorough preparation to meet global challenges that transcend borders, disciplines, and sectors. The aim of The Fletcher School was set out by its founders in 1933: to offer a broad program of professional education in international relations to a select group of graduate students committed to maintaining the stability and prosperity of a complex, challenging, and increasingly global society. The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy International Security Studies Program’s (ISSP) major goal is to prepare its students for public and private sector careers in international security. Every year, the U.S. armed services send distinguished field grade officers who attend Fletcher in lieu of a war college or other senior-level educational institution. The fellows take part in the various classroom and outside-the- classroom activities of the ISSP. These officers attend Fletcher seminars and lectures, as well as participate actively in ISSP educational activities, including serving as guest lecturers. This provides Fletcher students with essential practical insights. During the course of their fellowship, they are also required to complete a research paper on contemporary defense issues. This year the Department of Veterans Affairs has been extended an invitation to participate in this distinguished program.
