Research at West Point

Developing agile, critical-thinking leaders of character through research focused on real problems facing the Army and the Nation.

Tackling Complex Problems: For the Nation and the World

Research is a strength of West Point. It develops cadets by providing context to the classroom and is central to the USMA's vibrant and professional faculty. West Point cadets are driven, its faculty are world-class, and the Army applies that combination to its most difficult problems.

Cadets are involved in all of the research conducted at West Point – keeping in mind the USMA's mission to "build, educate, train, and inspire the Corps of Cadets to be commissioned leaders of character committed to the Army Values and ready for a lifetime of service to the Army and Nation."

The Office of Research oversees and coordinates all research-related efforts at USMA.
