The annual National Character and Leadership Symposium, one of the nation's premier symposia in the field of character and leadership development, brings together distinguished scholars, military leaders, corporate executives, world-class athletes, and others to explore a character-related theme based on the United States Air Force Academy's institutional outcomes. This symposium provides the opportunity for all Academy personnel, visiting university students and faculty, and community members to experience dynamic speakers and take part in group discussions to enhance their own understanding of the importance and challenges of sound moral character and leadership.

| ||The best leaders tell great stories - to energize, enlighten and equip others for action. At NCLS, we orient leaders to see themselves and their world differently, to see opportunities for character and leadership development, to emerge from being great people to being great leaders whose decisions and actions will shape a better future. |
