The Institute staff helps NDU colleges to make ethics and leadership more robust in their core and elective curricula.
Staff members provide courses at NDU on ethics, leadership, and related topics. General Myers and the Institute's Director, Dr. Albert C. Pierce, co-teach a popular course on ethical challenges in organizational life. This elective is primarily for students at the National War College and the Industrial College of the Armed Forces.
The Hon. Ike Skelton also co-teaches a course with Dr. David Allan Tretler on civil-military relations.
