The Military College of South Carolina

Leadership Speaker Series

The Citadel’s Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics is proud to bring together speakers from academia, public service, the military, and private industry to share their experience and wisdom with cadets, faculty, staff, alumni and guests of the college. For thirteen years, this tradition was centered around a single event, the annual Principled Leadership Symposium. Going forward, we are launching The Citadel’s “Leadership on Demand” speaker series. This new format will broaden our net of showcasing speakers of the highest quality allowing The Citadel community to browse and enjoy video and audio at any time on major video and podcasting platforms.
