The MG. Robert M. Joyce Installation Management Academy, School for Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) enables Garrisons to provide quality of life programs and services to Soldiers and Families by developing and sustaining the Family and MWR workforce through training, performance support and career planning. The School of Family and MWR supports the Family and MWR Master Training Plan by training entry level through executive staff and providing results-driven support. In the current environment characterized by transformation initiatives and declining resources, training and development of the workforce is strategic.
The School for Family and MWR offers approximately 60 courses through online or classroom formats. Currently, 40 courses have received college credit recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE) and graduates are increasingly transferring them to colleges and universities to receive college credits. All courses receive continuing education units (CEUs) from the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). Since the Academy was established, employees have completed over 60,000 courses in various Family and MWR program areas.
The School of Family and MWR relocated to a newly constructed facility on Fort Sam Houston Texas in July 2011 as a result of the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Act of 2005. The new facility is also the home of the School of Installation Management. These two schools, together with the Installation Management Command Education Knowledge Center, form the Installation Management Academy located within the G-7 Directorate of the Installation Management Command.
