Community History: The Permanent Military Professor (PMP) program was created in 1997 to establish a cadre of career naval officers with both doctoral degrees and extensive operational experience who would instruct at one of the Navy's education institutions until statutory retirement or until released from active duty. The program would specifically alleviate military instructor shortfalls at USNA, improve the educational background of military instructors and senior role models, strengthen military instructor presence at the Navy's education institutions, and provide viable opportunities for naval officers with doctoral degrees. On 30 September 2009, the PMP program separated from the Human Resources Community (1200), becoming the PMP community with the 1230 designator and its own competitive promotion category. FY-11 was the first promotion cycle in which PMPs competed in their own competitive category.
