CASL’s support NDU’s core mission of
Supporting the joint warfighter by providing rigorous Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) to members of the U.S. Armed Forces and select others in order to develop leaders that have the ability to operate and creatively think in an unpredictable and complex world.
CASL provides course support for NDU’s JPME colleges, the National War College, the Eisenhower School, the College of International Security Affairs, and the Joint Forces Staff College. CASL also supports the pilot JPME II program at the Information Resource Management College as well as non-JPME programs throughout the National Defense University. CASL exercises are built into the schools' and components' student curriculum. These exercises allow students to apply their class objectives and course knowledge to scenarios in a risk free, academic environment. CASL exercises serve as critical experiences in student educational matriculation.
