The U.S. Naval War College (NWC) was one of three organizations statewide recently to receive the Rhode Island Freedom Award for the school's support of National Guard and Reserve forces. NWC received the award for the category of public institutions within the state of Rhode Island. Of more than 2,000 nominees, 13 made the final cut. Established in 1884, U.S. Naval War College is the oldest institution of its kind in the world. The NWC offers a one-year resident program that graduates about 600 resident students and about 1,000 distance learning students each year. Students earn joint professional military education credit and either a diploma or graduate degree in national security and strategic studies or defense and strategic studies.
