The West Point Leadership Center (WPLC) exists to help the United States Military Academy produce leaders of character for the nation and remain the world’s preeminent leader development institution.  We do this by providing challenging experiences that stretch leaders, instilling new knowledge that expands leaders’ understanding of the world and human and organizational behavior, and facilitating substantial coaching, mentoring, and reflection. This approach provides optimal leader growth, inspiration, and promotes cadets to take ownership of their own development. The Leadership Center concentrates on three areas or lines of effort: Character and Leadership Development, Diversity and Inclusive Leadership, and Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
