Commandant's Corner

Picture of Dr. Reynolds Welcome to the DISAM website! Let me give you, a brief update on what’s going on at DISAM.

DISAM continues to be “a busy place” as FY13 was the third year within the last four with total DISAM student throughput exceeding 10,000 students encompassing all programs. We continue to pursue meeting DISAM training requirements; we’re currently at 92.5% for the entire community as we stress maintaining the 95% metric instituted in 2010. It continues to be a challenge, but slightly less than half of those deficient can correct their situation by simply accomplishing on-line requirements.

News & Notices

Temporary Suspension of the Global Master of Arts Program (GMAP)

As the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) is nearing completion of the Agency Strategic Plan, 2015-2020, a few areas regarding the SC Community Programs have been identified as requiring further analysis and review. GMAP is one of those areas. Therefore, while the analysis is being completed, the DSCA sponsorship for classes which were scheduled to begin in March and July of 2015 will be suspended. Students currently enrolled with graduation dates in 2015 will continue normally. When the analysis is complete, we will advise the community on the status of GMAP.
The American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT®) has evaluated and recommended college credit for six DISAM courses. Visit the Ace Equivalency Course Information page for more information.

New DISAM Learning Guides

Under Online Learning, DISAM has added another learning guide this month. It is entitled "Dealing with the Press" and is targeted primarily at SCO personnel who may interact with U.S. or host nation media in the course of their official duties overseas. This is a required block of instruction in our resident SCM-O course but can also be used as a universal resource or refresher by all SC personnel.

Additionally, DISAM now has two learning guides which address access and use of the Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP). "Security Cooperation Information Portal (SCIP)" provides an orientation on SCIP, how to obtain an account, and describes the key communities of information, such as FMS case information and end-use monitoring. "SCIP Case Status Demo" is an on-screen demonstration of how to log in to SCIP and how to navigate and search within the Case Information community.

DISAM invites you to check out these new learning guides and others at our Online Learning home page.
Updated GMAP application & recommendation forms now available!
