Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research, Assessment, and Accreditation Division (IRAAD), the official Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC) site for institutional data and reports, accreditation and partnership information.
JFSC is one of four colleges within the National Defense University (NDU). The mission of the Joint Forces Staff College is to educate national security professionals to plan and execute operational-level joint, multinational, and interagency operations to instill a primary commitment to joint, multinational, and interagency teamwork, attitudes, and perspectives. The four schools within JFSC focus on educating military officers and other leaders in matters relating to operational-level warfare. Our Joint Continuing and Distance Education School offers a 40-week blended, distance/residence course similar in content to the 10-week resident program offered by our Joint and Combined Warfighting School. Our Joint Advanced Warfighting School offers an 11-month, resident, masterís degree awarding course, and our Joint Command, Control, and Information Operations School offers short, specialized instruction for communicators and information operations staff officers. IRAAD supports this mission in a variety of ways.
