INTERNATIONAL MILITARY STUDENT SPONSORS
Command and Staff College will “Welcome Aboard” 32 International Military Students (IMS) this summer. To support their transition to the United States and their PME experience, each IMS will be assigned a US student sponsor. Consider volunteering early for this important billet. Complete the IMS Sponsor Form and submit to email@example.com. Those appointed as sponsors will be assigned to the same conference group.
PREPPING FOR WEEK 1 OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR
Students: Below are lesson cards and associated readings for the first week of the initial academic course, "Think, Decide, Communicate." Review the lesson cards, note there are embedded hyperlinks for some readings; other readings are attached. The intent is to give you time to "read ahead" and prepare for the first few lessons as you acclimate to the Command and Staff College environment.
“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD)
Much of the CSC curriculum is shared electronically on our .EDU network and the college provides wireless internet access. To access the network, you will need a CAC-enabled device. Our IT team has shared the following guidance to ensure you are “set up for success” with the BYOD policy:
Based on customer issues that we've seen, a Windows-based machine with Win 10 (it has inherent active client software already included) would be our recommendation for BYOD. It works best with CAC readers and is very user friendly with set-up/troubleshooting. Apple computers and CAC readers are the number one issue every year for students and their personal devices. You really have to know what you are doing with one and every time it updates it must be setup again. As far as USB ports, it needs at least one, but two or more would be advised.
