VMI’s Center for Leadership and Ethics
enhances the cadet experience by providing
opportunities rarely found on college
campuses. Each year the CLE hosts and
sponsors several conferences, symposia, and
other leadership initiatives. CLE programs
facilitate meaningful cadet interaction
with scholars, practitioners, speakers and
fellow students participating in a range of
workshops, discussions and presentations.
Cadets are encouraged to explore and
develop their own styles of leadership by
engaging in all the opportunities offered by
the Center.
