About the Command and General Staff College
CGSC CAMPAIGN PLAN: The campaign plan is a vehicle for leading and communicating change. It is both a document and a process to ensure unity of action, prioritize effort, and assess progress. The campaign plan establishes operational objectives and end states along the College’s five lines of operation: Students, Faculty, Curriculum, Leader Development and Education, and Infrastructure.
- Students: Students who possess a warrior ethos and war fighting focus enabling them to competently and confidently lead Army / Joint / Interagency / Multinational teams throughout the full spectrum of operations.
- Faculty: World-class military and civilian faculty supported by a faculty development program to maintain professional military and educational competency.
- Curriculum: Adaptive web-based curriculum founded on fundamental threads embedded in a multi-disciplinary approach to train for certainty and educate for uncertainty.
- Leader Development and Education: Providing leader development, instruction, doctrine, and PME system to sustain excellence in the Army’s core competency of growing leaders.
- Infrastructure: Fully resourced infrastructure to support the Army, the faculty, the students, and the curriculum.
The United States Army Command and General Staff College implements the vision and campaign plan through a governance and administration model that values inclusiveness and collaboration within the College, between the College and the joint force (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines), and between the College and our colleagues in our professional body of knowledge (e.g. multinational partners, U.S. government agencies, and educational institutions). The model includes:
- Organizational command structures (i.e. Commandant, Deputy Commandant, and School and Center Directors)
- Organizational support structures (i.e. Chief of Staff, Dean of Academics, and Graduate Council)
- College-level functional committees (i.e. Teaching, Assessment and Evaluation, Curriculum, Academic Outreach, Research, Accreditation, and Exercises)
- Student and faculty involvement (i.e. student and faculty brownbag lunches, staff and faculty council, faculty conversations, and student leadership)
- Involvement and feedback from the joint force and the professional body (external surveys, professional conferences, and personal contacts)
