The Simon Center for the Professional Military Ethic : Cadet Character Development Program

The Class of 1975 Cadet Character Development Program
The Cadet Character Development Program (CCDP) is a collaborative effort between the Brigade Tactical Department (BTD) and the Simon Center for the Professional Military Ethic (SCPME). The CCDP provides the conceptual and inspirational content to support the individual and collective development of Cadets into commissioned leaders of character, and is the foundation of our character education efforts. The CCDP is responsible for instruction and structured reflection on the concepts central to professional and ethical standards of behavior for the United States Army. Cadets put these standards of behavior into practice through their participation in the academic, military, and physical programs.
