From Senior Enlisted Academy

Senior Enlisted Academy LogoNEWPORT, R.I. - The Senior Enlisted Academy’s (SEA) Resident Class 168 graduated 93 students on Sept. 6 at Naval Station Newport. 

The guest speaker for the graduation was Chief Master Sgt. Lorna De La Cruz, U.S. Air Force.

The SEA resident course curriculum develops stronger leaders.  The six-week course prepares senior enlisted leaders to better fulfill expanded leadership and management responsibilities in advanced professional military settings.
The class is divided into small study groups to allow a free exchange of ideas, share professional experiences, debate problem solving issues, fostering self-confidence and team building.
This course is academically challenging with weekly quizzes, cumulative exams, four essay-type papers, and five oral presentations. The curriculum specifically addresses the following areas: communication skills, leadership, organizational behavior, national & international studies, and professional development. During time at the SEA, students can anticipate extensive reading, writing, self-study, and public speaking.
