About our Conference

The Center for Leadership and Ethics hosts an annual leadership and ethics conference, its capstone event. This conference addresses leadership and ethics issues of national importance.  The conference’s goal is to stimulate cadets’ critical thinking and refine their ethical decision-making skills in an uncertain world. This event is open to the entire Corps of Cadets, as well as outside attendees.  The conference incorporates internationally-recognized speakers, table group discussions, and interactive exercises.
