Welcome to the Air Command and Staff College
Our mission is to prepare our students to develop, employ, and most importantly command air, space and cyberspace power in joint, multinational and interagency operations. Our faculty challenges the students to think critically and exercise a combination of analytical and practical tools in order to prepare our students for their future leadership roles. The program is designed to enable our students to evolve from tactical experts in a particular career field into operational-level leaders. In addition to the academic rigor built into our programs, the student class diversity has proven to be an invaluable part of the ACSC experience.
Our faculty and staff are focused on providing superior intermediate Professional Military Education (PME) to mid-grade officers and civilians from the United States and our Allies. In addition, many of our students take advantage of the opportunity to earn a Master of Military Operational Art and Science degree.
The resident program is taught at Maxwell AFB, Alabama where mid-grade officers from the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marine Corps and over 65 partner nations around the globe comprise the class. Mid-grade civilians from the Air Force, Department of State, and other government agencies add a civilian and interagency perspective to our student class.
We also deliver intermediate PME to over 9,000 distance learning students enrolled in our On-line Master’s Program (OLMP) and Non-Masters Program (NMP) correspondence tracks. Students enrolled in these tracks are from the AF, Army, Navy and the Marine Corps as well DOD civilians.
Thanks for visiting our web site and please contact the ACSC command section at 334-953-2295 if you have any questions.
