"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think
critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Class of 1970 National Conference on Ethics in America (NCEA) is hosted annually by the William E. Simon Center for the Professional Military Ethic (SCPME) and the USMA Class of 1970. Each year the NCEA serves as a venue for USMA Cadets and ROTC undergraduates from across the nation to convene in order to discuss moral and ethical issues that are salient to character development in their institutions. The venue serves to empower these young leaders to spearhead developmental discussion upon their return.
