Established in 1884, the U.S. Naval War College in Newport is the oldest institution of its kind in the world. More than 50,000 students have graduated since its first class of 9 students in 1885 and over 160 of today’s active-duty admirals and generals are alumni. The College currently employs over 600 dedicated staff and faculty, and contributes over $100 million per year to the local economy.
