Senior Enlisted Academy

Our mission at the Navy Senior Enlisted Academy (SEA) is to further develop senior enlisted leaders to give sound decision-support in command, staff, management, and leadership positions in naval, joint, and multinational environments. The SEA provides senior enlisted leaders an understanding of national security strategy, joint force operations, and leadership skills with a constant focus on ethics, flexibility, and mission accomplishment in a global environment.

SEA Curriculum

The intent of the SEA curriculum is to promote senior enlisted leaders with the following requisite leader attributes:

  1. The ability to operate on commander’s intent and can enable mission command at all levels.
  2. The ability to make sound ethical decisions based on the values and standards of the profession of arms.
  3. The ability to use available resources to enhance the discipline, readiness, resiliency, and health of the total force.
  4. The ability to anticipate, communicate, and mitigate risks.
  5. The ability to operate in joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational environments.
  6. The ability to think critically and develop agile, adaptive leaders.
