CAC Ethics Instructor Training – Feb. 22-24

Welcome to the 2022 CAC Ethics Instructors Training Conference! We are excited for your participation in this event through which your vision for transformational ethics will be expanded and your talents for implementing quality instruction will be challenged. Our community of practice has a mandate to equip the Army’s student officers with moral reasoning and ethical engagement skills as preparation for the decisive engagements they will face on and off the battlefield.

All of you serve in unique capacities and have opportunities and responsibilities to Steward the Profession, Develop Leaders and Drive Change as stated within the CAC Commander’s Lines of Effort. Therefore, our objective is to close the gap between the classroom and the ethical decisions leaders must make in real time by specifically focusing on the development and implementation of ethical decision-making scenarios within field training exercises. This will require you to seriously consider your capabilities to provide internal advisement, conduct mission analysis and embrace the opportunities collaboration with colleagues offers.

On this registration page you will find articles to help you prepare and conceptualize the mission, so take time to read them and reflect. (Read aheads and registration are below)

We are so glad you are a part of this process and may God richly bless our humble efforts as instructors, course writers and servants to our nation’s Soldiers!
For God and Country,
Chaplain (Col.) Michael Jeffries, Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Seth George and Sgt. 1st Class Harold (Bud) Brown
