Intro Video

Expectations regarding campus and learning experiences are changing as global conditions and demographics of learners continue to shift. NPS needs to expand its reach to bring together Academia, the Fleet and Industry partners.

The Campus of the Future (CoF) initiative, in cooperation with Microsoft*, looks to reimagine NPS' educational ecosystem to address and meet faculty and student expectations.  The effort includes investigation of innovative paths for productive collaboration between academia, industry, and the Fleet that breakdown pervasive silos limiting the institution's ability to take advantage of critical resources and expand its academic footprint to the Fleet.

The CoF initiative pilot new ideas and identifies long term solutions by bringing together interdisciplinary, goal-oriented teams to propose solutions that keeps pace with and allows participation in an ever-changing defense environment.  The first three projects under the CoF initiative are listed below.  Please continue to check back to learn about the progress made in each area as well as the opportunities to participate and provide crucial feedback.
