History[edit] Before 1946, the U.S. military relied on specially-created programs to meet specific needs. They also made use of smaller training programs elsewhere. The closer integration of military forces and increasing complexity of strategy and technology necessitated the foundation of The National War College

and the Industrial College
College
of the Armed Forces. To better integrate all the education programs, Congress created the National Defense University

in 1976. In 1981, the Joint Forces Staff College

was created, followed by the Department of Defense Computer Institute (DODCI) in 1982, which later was renamed the Information Resources Management College. In 1984 the university created the Institute for National Strategic Studies to meet the demand for military research. After the Goldwater-Nichols Act
