The DRMI is Now Part of the Defense Security Cooperation University (DSCU)

The Office of the Under Secretary of Defense Policy (OSDP) announced on 25 September 2023, that the DRMI has realigned to the Defense Security Cooperation University (DSCU), a directorate of the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA). The DRMI is now one of five DSCU components. In collaboration with the rest of DSCA, the University’s cross-functional components and headquarters’ sections work in concert to create synergies that benefit students, strategic partners, and the National Defense Strategy. “As DSCU strives to be the center of intellectual life for the Security Cooperation Enterprise, adding DRMI’s integral mission and impressive faculty to DSCU’s ranks is a major step,” said Dr. Celeste Gventer, DSCU President. DSCU’s mission is to advance the knowledge and practice of Security Cooperation through the education, training, and development of the U.S. Security Cooperation workforce and through the education, training, and institutional capacity building of partner nations; and to produce research, analysis, and lessons learned that expand the intellectual foundations of Security Cooperation. "We are thrilled to join DSCU and DSCA in recognition of our 60 years of contributing to the U.S. security cooperation mission. We look forward to continuing to provide outstanding executive and professional education in resources management, financial management, and other aspects of defense institutional capacity building," said Dr. Natalie J. Webb, DRMI's Executive Director.
