About the Command and General Staff College

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES: The CGSC mission statement conveys the College's essential tasks and the vision expresses our ideal of the future. We adjust our mission statement to accommodate continuous and deliberate analysis of guidance (national, DOD, Army, TRADOC, and CAC), and the complexities of the contemporary operating environment. Our continuing challenge is current and relevant leader development through professional military education.We ensure currency and relevancy by immersing ourselves in our professional body of knowledge, contributing to that knowledge with collaboration and publication, and simultaneously adapting our programs to meet the needs of our students, commanders, and operational forces.

Our strategic priorities help guide the evolution of our institution and the adaptation of our programs in pursuit of educational excellence:

  • Educate and train our students to ensure successful graduates can lead teams and solve complex problems in ambiguous environments in accordance with CGSC learning outcomes.
  • Research and publish, with particular emphasis on operational-level land power studies.
  • Recruit, develop, and retain world-class faculty.
  • Support the Army at War and advance the profession of arms.
