NEWPORT, R.I. - The U.S. Naval War College (NWC) recently published “Naval War College: The Navy’s Home of Thought,” a magazine-style publication describing the college’s history and current curricular and research engagements.
The magazine features artistic photographs, articles about the importance of NWC and its programs, profiles of senior personnel and research bodies, and an intuitive layout.
“The notion was the War College has a great story to tell and how do we get that to a mass audience,” said Professor John Jackson, primary editor and project manager.
The magazine was produced by a private company and advertising covered the production and printing costs. Production took about eight months. In addition to a snapshot of the college, the magazine lends itself to scholars, military leaders, and others who have never visited the campus.
Many copies have already been distributed to international alumni and delegates of the 20th International Seapower Symposium, a biennial conference on seapower.
The Honorable Isaac Newton "Ike" Skelton, a former U.S. Representative who was a proponent of professional military education on the House Armed Services Committee for more than 20 years, lends his views on the importance of a war college education in one of the articles. Other articles detail the college’s influence on global maritime security and NWC’s adaptability to the needs of future military leaders.
Future issues of the magazine will feature other topics, from critical research to Joint Professional Military Education development.
