Center for Leadership and Ethics
VMI offers a relevant education within a military environment, developing character, engendering a sense of responsibility and cultivating the ability to master adversity. These leadership traits are inculcated through cadet-led programming, including the Corps of Cadets, the Honor Court and the class system. All cadets take part in Army, Navy, Marine Corps, or Air Force ROTC programs. The VMI experience is a leadership lab, preparing cadets for military and civilian careers alike.
The Center for Leadership and Ethics enhances VMI’s system of leadership training by offering cadet programming focused on leadership, ethics, and character development, and a robust schedule of conferences on challenging topics of national and international interest.
The Center for Leadership and Ethics is supported in part by the Jackson-Hope Fund.
