The mission of GKS CSC is to develop SAF officers for their roles as senior and mid-level leaders in the Singapore Armed Forces. The College's vision of ‘World Class College, First Class Experience' articulates the aspiration of GKS CSC to be a world-class institution, recognised for its quality of curriculum, conducive learning environment and unmatched facilities to enable students to enjoy a holistic, relevant and nurturing education that can be summarised as an experience that is truly first class.
A Command and Staff College that aspires to be world class must excel at meeting the education and training needs of mid-level SAF officers. It must expose students to the challenges of leadership and management in Singapore and the SAF. With the ever changing global and regional landscape, GKS CSC is an important institution to ensure that mid-level SAF officers are capable of operating and thriving in the full spectrum of the operational continuum, are able to thrive in a dynamic environment by being highly adaptive and are highly resilient. To this end, no effort is spared to ensure that the quality and delivery of the curriculum are of the highest standards to enable all students to have a professionally enriching and enjoyable learning experience that is second to none.
