The Naval War College has two main missions: to educate future leaders and to help define the future Navy. These are, remarkably, the basic mis- sions for which the College was established over a century ago. The times have certainly changed, the technology of maritime warfare has improved, and the geopolitical landscape would hardly be recognizable to our founder, Stephen B. Luce. But the mission has remained constant—to be a force for change and to serve as the intellectual center of the Navy.
