As part of Army University, the Command and General Staff College (CGSC) is constantly learning and evolving. This evolution of change is vital to the mission of the college in educating, training and developing leaders in a learner-centric environment. Like other universities, the Command and General Staff Officer's Course (CGSOC) continuously looks for new ways to increase the "academic rigor" of the courseware while using the latest technology. Academic rigor in a learner-centric environment ultimately allows students the freedom to create, integrate, and apply their own meaning to the doctrine, mental models, skills, and processes taught at the college. Part of this recent change involved the implementation of the first Common Core Comprehensive Exam (Comp Exam) to the CGSS Class of 2018, comprised of approximately 1,200 students.
