Military Family Program (MFP)


The Military Family Program (MFP) at the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) supports and supplements the academic curriculum and provides for the needs and interests of students, their spouses, and children. The MFP learning outcomes are connected with and complement the PLOs established for USAWC students, analysis of Senior Spouse leadership roles, assessment of participant critiques, and input from experienced Senior Spouse leaders. The objective of the MFP is to support USAWC students and their spouses to prepare for their future roles as senior leaders responsible for developing and implementing personal, unit, and community family programs around the world. To accomplish these objectives, the MFP presents a series of lectures, seminars, and workshops throughout the academic year designed to build individual knowledge, skills, and behaviors and integrate enduring themes, particularly as they relate to military spouse leadership roles. All of the MFP events are typically open to all resident and non- resident USAWC students and spouses.
