OUR ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY
For over 50 years, the Army War College Foundation and its Alumni Office have been providing the Margin of Excellence to the academic experience at the U.S. Army War College.
The Alumni Association of the U.S. Army War College was formed on May 19, 1967 in an effort to enable graduates to stay connected and promote the interests of the U.S. Army War College.
The Army War College Foundation, Inc., was established in 1977 to enhance the academic experience at the U.S. Army War College. The Army War College Foundation, Inc. and the Alumni Association of the U.S. Army War College merged on August 1, 2008 with a combined purpose of supporting the U.S. Army War College and its graduates.
The Foundation has continued to enhance the educational experience of the student body through stewardship of traditional programs. Foundation funding directly supports student and faculty events such as: National Security Seminar, honorariums for distinguished guest lecturers, writing awards for students and faculty, the International Fellows Program, and conferences and exercises. Additionally, the Foundation stands ready to assist with new and evolving program opportunities as needs are presented by the college.
The Office of Alumni Affairs has grown from an association with a few founding members to one with over 10,000 current members today. The organization serves as the U. S. Army War College Gift Shop (The Sutler Store) and it supports a wide range of programs for current class members and graduates and their families. Alumni Affairs sponsors and holds the copyright on the official history of the U.S. Army War College.
Our Foundation staff remains committed to the best possible support to the College and its graduates and friends.
