Joint Forces Staff College

Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC) is a component of National Defense University (NDU). The JFSC campus is located in Norfolk, Virginia aboard the Naval Support Activity- Norfolk. The mission of the Joint Forces Staff College is to educate national security professionals to plan and execute operational-level joint, multinational, and interagency operations to instill a primary commitment to joint, multinational, and interagency teamwork, attitudes, and perspectives. Military operations increasingly require the Armed Services to work jointly and JFSC provides students the tools to operate in a joint environment. JFSC is composed of several schools, each with different student populations and purposes: Joint Advanced Warfighting School (JAWS), Joint and Combined Warfighting School (JCWS), and Joint Continuing and Distance Education School (JCDES). Additionally, JFSC is home to the Joint Command, Control, and Information Operations School (JC2IOS) and several other short certificate courses.
