Commandant's Message

I'm hoping that you've not had issues finding us! As you can tell by our new website -- The Defense Institute of Security Assistance Management (DISAM) transitioned to the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies (DISCS). This became effective 1 July 2016, and comes as DSCA more closely aligns the schoolhouse, its curriculum, and its mission priorities with DOD strategic guidance, and DSCA's vision for the future. The name change reflects DSCA's focus on full spectrum capability building and that the schoolhouse's mandate for training the workforce has expanded beyond Security Assistance to include all of Security Cooperation.

There are a number of transitional issues in progress and we will work with various constituencies and other supporting organizations to be as seamless as possible in our support to you. As you can see, the Institute’s website has a new URL of www.iscs.dsca.mil. In terms of you contacting DISCS, please note that "Group e-mail addresses" (such as the Registrar’s Office) will change as soon as we can work through the IT wickets, but old group email addresses should work after the change for some time. All email addresses and phone numbers for institute personnel remain the same as they were prior to changing our name to the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies. Note that there have been no changes to course designations or names of the courses offered by the Institute.

This is an exciting time for the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies and we looking forward to continuing our long-standing service to the security cooperation workforce for years to come as we keep pace with the environment impacting all of you as our constituents.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ron Reynolds
