VMI Hosts Conferences and Symposia on National Issues

The conferences at VMI are hosted and organized by the VMI Center for Leadership and Ethics' team of conference professionals, faculty, and staff. These events provide forums for discussions on issues of national, regional, and state importance, such as cybersecurity, STEM education, and the environment. Some conferences also provide co-curricular leader development and ethical training opportunities for VMI cadets.  Most of the conferences are open to the public and create strategic outreach between the Institute and leaders in academia, business, government, military, and think-tanks.
