HistoryEdit

The college was established by the Chief of Staff of the Army in 1951. The first commander was Lieutenant Colonel A.Y. Mokoginta. The college was established because there was a shortage of army officers who were capable of command and staff responsibilities like as unit commanders and executive officers. In 1953, the first campus of the college was inaugurated by President Sukarno.[2]
