Welcome and congratulations on your selection to attend the Joint Senior Public Affairs Course (JSPAC)!
The course provides the capstone experience for senior public affairs leaders within the DOD and other U.S. government agencies, as well as foreign militaries. Students review operational challenges in today's complex security environments; they also explore and refine their role as senior communication counselors and strategic planners through panel and guided discussions with senior leader mentors and distinguished guest speakers. The class participates in staff rides, examines case studies, and develops operational strategies for group and individual exercises.
