The VMI Center for Leadership and Ethics hosts several conferences each year. These provide forums for discussions on issues of national, regional, and state importance, such as cybersecurity, STEM education, and the environment. The conferences provide co-curricular leader development and ethical training opportunities for VMI cadets.  Most of the conferences are open to the public and create strategic outreach between the Institute and leaders in academia, business, government, military, and think-tanks.
