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
Commandant
Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies

Commandant's Message

A lot has happened since my last update here, and I will only hit the highlights. Work continues as things push forward on the SC Workforce Development Program (SCWDP) effort per the guidance in NDAA 2017. I won’t try to address it here – I won’t do it justice in such a short column. However, I’d note that for the most current information – the work of the SCWDP Working Group (and its three Sub-Working Groups and 5 Lines of Effort), are available via a periodic newsletter published by DSCA. If you’d like the most recent edition, please let me know.

In a major realignment to better support DSCA’s efforts to develop the Departments’ Security Cooperation Workforce Development program, the Defense Institute of Security Cooperation Studies has fallen under the Security Cooperation Workforce Development Directorate as of 2 June 2017. This move aligns all SC training, education and certification programs under the Directorate developing and managing the DoD SCWDP and facilitates greater engagement and support for development of the future SC education and training policies and programs as well as the development of the Defense Security Cooperation University.

DISCS has begun efforts for its satellite campus in the National Capital Region – with Mr. Dan Eagle on board as our new Director of Strategy Instruction and the process ongoing to bring on four more faculty (in the process of bringing on three faculty members that will be in place there permanently as we look at existing and new courses that would be most effective in conducting there (several classes now offered there vice our main campus at WPAFB).

In the realm of courseware/class changes – the SCM-O (Overseas) Course has changed its scheme to where all students now attend for the full four weeks. The syllabus has changed and is current on our website.

We are in the process of our cycle for programming DISCS activities/academic calendar for FY18 – really looking to “bridge the gap” between current SC community/enterprise education and training requirements – which are significant – and ultimately get us to where we need to be in the schoolhouse efforts directed by NDAA 2017. One key thing for you to note – as a potential student – we often have unused seats in our classes at Wright-Patt. If you need training and can’t seem to get a seat, please let us/me know. We’ll work with your chain of command to get you a seat in the class that is required for you.

I’ll stop there and set a goal of updating the CC Corner at least monthly to keep you informed in a more timely way in this fast-paced environment.

Sincerely,

Dr. Ron Reynolds
