NPS Board of Advisors Gathers for Annual Spring Meeting

By MC2 Michael Ehrlich

Members of the NPS Board of Advisors gathered on campus for their annual spring meeting, April 20-21, to discuss current and future university initiatives, along with the initial results of the recent Navy Inspector General inspection.

"The most important thing is that the inspection affirmed that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing with regards to our mission, functions and responsibilities," said NPS Acting Provost Dr. James H. Newman. "What we want to do is reframe the conversation back in Washington within these terms. Mainly, we want to regain the Navy's trust, and we feel we have come a long way in doing that."

NPS has re-emphasized its focus on its core mission, noted NPS President retired Vice Adm. Ronald A. Route, educating officers from all branches of the U.S. military, our allies, and Department of Defense civilians, to enhance our nation's warfighting capabilities.

The re-emphasis is part of an institution-wide effort responding to the Vice Chief of Naval Operations' (VCNO) roadmap toward re-establishing NPS as the pre-eminent institution for officer graduate education in the DOD.

"We have a roadmap from the VCNO, where we are now and how we are progressing to completion along the way," said Route. "I see this as very positive … Even though we currently have this oversight, we also have a direct, persistent conduit straight to the VCNO. I am very confident this path will lead us back to a point where we are able to act with the full confidence of our leadership in Washington."
