The article focuses on the importance of a strategic asset for engagement of the National Defense University (NDU) in Washington D.C. which is the center for joint professional military education. NDU lacks a strategic focus of its efforts in international engagement activities as part of its outreach mission requirement. Educational engagement activities should be divided into three levels as part of providing strategic direction to NDU.
