Few places do more to foster world diplomacy and global cooperation than the Naval War College. For over 130 years, distinguished officers from every branch of the armed services, federal agencies and foreign countries have come to our Newport campus to learn how wars are fought, how conflicts are resolved and how, if possible, to prevent them.  The close personal  relationships formed among a constantly changing mix of officers from around the world helps us build and strengthen bridges of peace that span oceans, cultures and beliefs.
