Roles and Levels of Leadership 1 August 2012 ADRP 6-22 2-3 2-19. Selection of Army Civilians depends on their eligibility to hold the position. Their credentials reflect the expertise with which they enter a position. Proficiency derives from education and training they have obtained, prior experiences, and career-long ties to special professional fields. Army Civilians hold the grade of the position in which they serve. Except for the Commander in Chief (the President of the United States) and Secretary of Defense, Army Civilians do not exercise military command; however, they may be designated to exercise general supervision over an Army installation or activity under the command of a military superior. Army Civilians primarily exercise authority based on the position held, not their grade. 2-20. Civilian personnel have functional proponents for career fields that ensure provisions exist for career growth. Army Civilians are free to pursue positions and promotions as they desire. Personnel policies generally state that Army Civilians should be in positions that do not require military personnel for reasons of law, training, security, discipline, rotation, or combat readiness. Army Civilians, many with uniformed military experience, bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Army team.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
