Welcome to the United States Military Academy at AUSA


Our Cadets and Faculty work hard throughout the year to develop, design, and execute research projects that solve Army and other real-world problems. Enrichment activities provide experiential learning opportunities for cadets to see the intersection between theory and practice. This collection is just a sample of the great work being done at USMA. In addition, we selected a sampling of our other current projects and initiatives to highlight what we currently have ongoing at West Point.

America's Army and Its People

West Point was established in 1802 as the first Military Service Academy in the United States. West Point continues to evolve as an institution to prepare cadets as Leaders of Character for the future challenges they will face once they commission as 2nd lieutenants in the Army.

Transforming for the Future

West Point collaborates across the Army Commands, Department of Defense, and other Federal Government Agencies to create new knowledge and advance research in different disciplines. Many of these projects have immediate applicability, while some of them are truly groundbreaking initiatives. You are encouraged to review the projects and reach out to the primary point of contact if you want further information.

Army ROTC is the largest officer-producing organization with the American military, having over 600,000 men and women have earned a commission through the program. Among them are two chairmen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, seven Army chiefs of staff, two Cabinet secretaries and a sitting Supreme Court associate justice. Few other military commissioning sources can claim such significant lineage. Throughout the last hundred years, the U.S. and its Army faced numerous challenges both at home and abroad. Wars against despotic foreign governments were fought and won; economic depressions endured; medical, scientific and technological advances were made; and U.S.-led peacekeeping operations contributed to greater global stability. Click here for more information about the Reserve Officer Training Corps.
