2013 Principled Leadership Symposium schedule of events

"Principled Leadership as Duty: Aspiring to a Higher Ideal” is the theme for the 2013 Principled Leadership Symposium March 7-8 at The Citadel.

The symposium is the opening event to the annual Corps Day celebration in honor of the 170th birthday of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. For information click on Corps Day Schedule of Events to see all the activities planned.

The Principled Leadership Symposium is made possible by the generous support of Bill ('63) and Gay Krause and by Steve ('64) and Rita McManus as well as The Citadel Class of 1969 and The Citadel Alumni Association.
“Learning principled leadership is at the heart of a Citadel education,” said Col. Joseph Trez, executive director of the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics, “and the symposium is a key component of that learning process, giving cadets and student delegates an opportunity to engage with one another and broaden their understanding of what it means to be a principled leader.”
