The Salvation Army College for Officer Training in the USA Eastern Territory, is governed by the Board of Trustees of the Corporation; this is the final fiduciary, approval and oversight function for the College.  As this group has these responsibilities for all Salvation Army personnel, units and operations in the thirteen Northeastern United States and the territory of Puerto Rico, it has ceded academic oversight and authority to the Academic Oversight Advisory Council.


The purpose of the Council is to advise, improve and support the quality of Salvation Army officer training by:

 To aid The Salvation Army in interpreting its officer training and education programs to the communities of the USA Eastern Territory:

To interpret to the above communities the needs, attitudes and opinions expressed by The Salvation Army’s Board of Trustees; and,

To monitor and oversee the curriculum and faculty appointments at the College for Officer Training

The Academic Oversight Advisory Council will discharge its responsibilities such that the College will maintain and strengthen its educational programs, as prescribed in the approval received from The New York State Board of Regents and Commissioner of Education (as a nationally recognized accrediting agency).  The Council’s minutes and recommendations are forwarded and approved by the Board of Trustees.
