This multiple case study provides an overview of current practices that advance leadership and character development programs and initiatives within military higher education. Selected scholars and practitioners from the United States Military Academy (West Point), the United States Naval Academy, and the United States Air Force Academy participated in semi-structured interviews. Information gleaned from questions pertaining to academic courses, classes, seminars and workshops, and honor education initiatives, in support of a comprehensive approach to leadership and character development, directed the research process.
The findings and recommendations provide a conceptual framework for support of strategic and operational considerations in the development and implementation of leadership and character development initiatives at military, as well as traditional, colleges and universities. Strategic initiatives include the unification of effort among faculty, staff, and administration in the planning and implementation of learning outcomes and related competencies in support of the institute’s mission and core values. Operational initiatives include the integration, synchronization, and unity of effort among scholars and practitioners to reinforce all aspects of education and training surrounding leadership and character development.
