NATO Defense College (NDC) is an international military college for North Atlantic Treaty Organization countries located in Rome, Italy.
The idea of a NATO Defense College originated with General Dwight D. Eisenhower, the first Supreme Allied Commander Europe, who identified very early on the need for a new international institution with a unique education mission. On 19 November 1951, the NATO Defense College opened its doors to Course 1 in Paris. In 1966, France withdrew from the Alliance's integrated military structure and the College moved to Rome where it continues to fulfill its mission. First, on 10 September 1999, the new College building, twice the size of the old one, was inaugurated Cecchignola Città Militare, a military zone 2 km from the former site. Then, on 25 September 2001, the NATO Defense College celebrated its 50th Anniversary and hosted the 48th Annual Conference and Seminar of the Association of Anciens. Eight years later on 25 September 2009 celebration of the 60th Anniversary of NATO and the NATO Defense College ten years in Cecchignola.
The Commandant is an officer with the rank of Lieutenant-General; As of 22 July 2011 the Commandant is Lt.Gen. Arne Baard Dalhaug (Norwegian Army). To accomplish its mission the College is organized into four main divisions that perform education and research tasks coordinated by the DEAN (civilian equivalent of a 2-star General) of the College.
The divisions work closely together to provide breadth, flexibility and quality of high-level strategic education.
The Director of Management (a Brigadier General) supervises management of the NDC’s financial and technical resources with the aim of improving the quality of life in the College and creating the best conditions for work and study.
