The College of Operational and Strategic Leadership (COSL) was formally established in 2007 to focus the Naval War College's efforts as an
advocate for developing the Navy's operational expertise, promoting the ethos of the naval officer, and understanding the requirements
to develop leaders for the future. As such, it has worked very closely with senior Navy leadership and all the U.S. Navy fleet
commanders around the world to prepare for the complex challenges of today and help anticipate the needs of the future.
