These institutions, both public and private,
represent a unique combination of talent that has
both relied on and has contributed to the
excellence and effectiveness of the NIPS and DLI.
The unique intellectual capacity of this region
with complimentary missions creates a synergy
that would be impossible to reproduce in any

However, it today 's era of 'jointness, ' this past
lack of inter-service collaboration should no
longer stand in the way of doing what makes
sense... The viability of a consolidated DoD
university is validated by the organizational
structure of major universities.
Dr. Ray Clifford
Former Chancellor, Defense Language Institute
It has come to my attention that some individuals

President, American Council on Education
The advanced degree programs offered by NPS
are distinct from those offered at "civilian "
universities... These additional requirements are
reflected in the fact that NPS students enroll in
approximately 128 quarter units in completion of
their program requirements at NPS. At most
universities, they would only complete between 36
and 45 quarter units for a master 's degree... In my
opinion, the NPS is a great military asset that has
evolved over the last 100 years to be the most
outstanding defense graduate education university
in the world.
Henry T. Yang
Chancellor, University of California Santa Barbara
The Naval Postgraduate School has been
recognized for effectively anticipating an
increasingly changing security and technological
environment... The agility of NPS seems largely
due to a unique mix of U.S. officers and faculty,
who are engaged together in a challenging
research environment focused on national
security...I would ask you to consider a
continuing role for NPS: to provide focused
educational programs for the total force,
including both our enlisted and civilian members,
and those civilians who support our efforts In the
overall national security workforce.
Arden L. Bernent, Jr.
Director, National Science Foundation
...the unique assets of the Naval Postgraduate
School provide valuable contributions to our
programs..,we believe that the partnership with
the Naval Postgraduate School, through its
extensive experiment testing programs,
operationally experienced faculty and student
body, and alliances with DoD, the Services, and
the Commands and nearly forty defense
contractors, will greatly enhance the transfer of
Laboratory technologies and software in support
of U.S. national security.

Deputy Director for Science and Technology
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
...to urge the Commission to adopt the option of
combining the Defense Language Institute and
Naval Postgraduate School into a single
educational and training organization ...I believe
that my professional experience enables me to
provide useful insights into the desirability of
this...Many policymakers do not realize that NPS
is a leading center of strategic and area studies in
the United States. While civilian universities were
abandoning their programs in security and area
studies at the end of the Cold War, NPS bolstered
its programs geared to prepare today's war
