Command and General Staff School (CGSS)

The Command and General Staff School (CGSS), is the largest of four academic schools within the Command and General Staff College (CGSC) at Ft. Leavenworth. CGSS provides masters-level curriculum and instruction to nearly 5000 US Army Majors, Sister Service, and Interagency personnel annually, by way of the command and General Staff Officer Course (CGSOC).

Mission:CGSS educates field grade officers to be agile, innovative, and adaptive leaders within increasingly complex and uncertain environments. Contemporary field grade officers are those who communicate effectively, think critically, and are able to build and lead organizations under mission command in Unified Land Operations.

Student-officers of CGSS will complete the CGSOC through one of three primary venues: the resident course at Fort Leavenworth, one of four satellite campuses (Ft. Belvoir, Ft. Lee, Ft. Gordon or Redstone Arsenal), or through the distance learning programs (also housed at Ft. Leavenworth).
