Krause Center for Leadership & Ethics

The Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics oversees, coordinates, and enhances the college’s campus-wide leadership development and ethical growth curriculum. Originally funded as a result of the vision and financial support of Bill Krause, ’63, and his wife, Gay, the Krause Center is a multifaceted office that serves as a resource for institutional and regional outreach activities while promoting leadership and ethics on campus.

The Krause Center operates in partnership with other campus departments to advance The Citadel’s mission to educate principled leaders. The center has implemented the campus-wide Leader Development Program, which integrates initiatives across the Four Pillars that collectively define The Citadel experience: academic instruction, military training, physical effectiveness, and ethical development.

The center is achieving its mission through academic and training programs guided by the expected outcomes within the Leader Development Program, the annual Principled Leadership Symposium, and robust service learning programs.

The Foundation for Leadership campaign will fund key initiatives and programs designed to enhance the Krause Center’s reach and capacity to foster leader development across campus:

Leader Development Program Curriculum for the Corps of Cadets
Annual Principled Leadership Symposium
Service Learning and Civic Engagement Programs
Leadership Day
SUCCEED as Leaders
Distinguished Professor in Service Learning and Community Engagement
