Abstract:

A comparison of the five United States senior service colleges must be approached within an awareness that they all have as a common objective the preparation of senior military officers and civilian officials for future roles as responsible executives in the decision making bodies of the armed forces and other government agencies. In addition, the direction that each has taken over the past decade has been based to a large extent on the Clements Commission Report of Senior Service College Curriculm Study published in 1975. Against this background the differences between the schools can be seen primarily as ones of emphasis, focus, or structure rather than ones of significant content or directional divergence. This study presents analyses of those areas within the senior service colleges that the authors believed would best demonstrate both the similarities and differences between these five uniformly excellent institutions. Individual reports on each college have been included for the benefit of those readers who may have an interest in a more detailed description of the program at a particular school. If a conclusion is to be drawn from this study, it is that all five colleges are successfully meeting their objectives by providing the leadership cadre of the military services and many government agencies with a graduate level couse of instruction with a major in national security, strategy and policy, and a minor in the preparation and execution of military activities in support of that policy.
