Performance and Counseling Services

Center for Enhanced Performance (CEP)


The mission of the Center for Enhanced Performance is to educate and train the Corps of Cadets on comprehensive performance psychology and academic skills to develop their full potential.

About the Center for Enhanced Performance

The Center for Enhanced Performance (CEP) is West Point’s comprehensive student assistance center, providing all cadets with a variety of individual and group programs and services focused on helping cadets further develop as self-regulated learners and leaders of character. The CEP helps cadets achieve excellence in West Point’s three developmental pillars – academic, physical, and military – through targeted education and training on specific strategies and intangible mental skills that underlie elite human performance across all domains.​ 

Center for Personal Development

The Center For Personal Development (CPD) provides comprehensive counseling services to the Corps of Cadets in an accepting and supportive environment.  CPD is staffed by Army and Civilian clinical psychologists with a broad range of experience providing counseling and behavioral health treatment.  CPD also provides consultation to the USCC Chain of Command and supporting staff (TACs, instructors, sponsors, mentors, and others) regarding psychological, behavioral, or developmental concerns relating to cadets. Our mission is to “facilitate the personal and professional development of cadets into leaders of character as future Army officers.”  The center’s motto “Know Yourself to Lead Others” embodies our mission and purpose.
