CENTER FOR STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP (CSL)
The Center for Strategic Leadership (CSL)’s areas of emphasis are experiential education, Senior Leader education, support to Army Senior Leader research, and support to both U.S. Army War College and Army Senior Leader strategic communication efforts. CSL’s professional staff and facility host, support, develop, and conduct world-class events (workshops, symposia, conferences, games, and exercises) focused on a broad range of strategic leadership and national security issues and concepts in support of the USAWC, the Army and the Interagency and Joint Communities.
Foundation funding primarily supports programs that are generally political-military decision-making exercises or experiential events designed to provide students an opportunity to engage with and learn from strategic leaders and staffs as they integrate and apply knowledge acquired in the USAWC core curriculum. Funding also support events that bring senior leaders from other organizations and agencies to discuss critical issues, e.g. homeland security, international strategic crises, etc., and provide direction on events that are currently affecting national security. There is also modest funding support in this program for the Strategic Leader Seminars I and II, Basic Strategic Art Program, Executive Leader Course, Combined and Joint Force Land Component Commander’s Course, and International Strategic Crisis Negotiation Exercises.
