Leadership Book Program

This cadet-led program, sponsored and supported by the CLE, encourages reading and discussion on leadership topics by cadets, faculty and staff, including topics on current and sometimes controversial issues. Periodically the program brings authors to VMI to speak to a wider audience and host book signings.

Meetings are held on Thursday evenings from 1945 until 2030 in the Shenandoah Room of Marshall Hall (CLE). All cadets, faculty, and staff are welcome and encouraged to attend.
