USMA is executing a paradigm shift in its approaches to military training and development. Currently, we conduct three months of military training each summer to imbue cadets with necessary military competencies, skills, and awareness/understanding of how the Army operates and fights. USMA’s vision and plan for the future expands military training across the year and integrates it more fully with academic and physical development domains, to achieve a more persistent and continuous approach to holistic leader development across all domains.
The following diagram illustrates the West Point Military Complex development plan. You can also click here to view the development plan in a separate browser tab.
To achieve these aims, modernized facilities and year-round capabilities are required across the West Point Military Complex to facilitate USMA’s current and future military training and development methodologies as aligned with the priorities set by the Army. This project is a critical component to enabling local provision of Army training that is relevant to the present, and looking into the future, so that it may be regularly integrated into the overall development program at the Army's preeminent leadership development institution.
West Point Military Complex (WPMC)
The West Point Military Complex (WPMC), consisting of Camps Buckner and Natural Bridge, our training areas and ranges, and its hub at Washington Hall, will provide modernized and adaptable capabilities that enhance our ability to educate, train and inspire cadets and faculty to innovate, lead and succeed in tomorrow’s increasingly complex multi-domain operating environment.
