RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces the Junior Permanent Military Professor (JPMP) Selection Board
for November 2013. Selection for assignment to the JPMP Program is made by an institutional screening
board, which will make its selections from officers who have submitted an application for the program
by the deadline and meet all applicable requirements.

faculty development, and curriculum feedback.
