Administrative Departments

The U.S. Naval War College’s (NWC) academic mission is supported by a host of administrative departments. The day-to-day operations at NWC would not be possible without the contributions of our staff members, from maintaining student records and onboarding new employees to keeping our campus safe and secure.
