The Class of 1970 National Conference on Ethics in America
"Grit: the Unyeilding Determination to Prevail"

October 16-17 2018

The Simon Center for the Professional Military Ethic (SCPME) executed the 34th annual National Conference on Ethics in America (NCEA) on 16-17 October 2018. We hosted approximately 220 cadets and students from West Point, Service Academies, ROTC and Civilian schools from across the nation. This year’s theme was “Grit: the unyielding determination to prevail.” Student delegates had the opportunity to hear fascinating stories about Grit from 8 speakers, participate in facilitated discussions, experience a tour of West Point, and eat lunch in the Cadet Mess Hall.
