Abstract : The USAWC's objective is to prepare senior leaders to deal with a complex, uncertain, and ever changing environment--an environment filled with ethical challenges. This research study provides an assessment of the current AWC Ethics curriculum to include an analysis of ethical issues for the future. Research efforts include directed interviews with experienced General Officers who provide their collective wisdom on tough moral and ethical issues. The paper considers ethical awareness training as a vital field of study for strategic leaders. The training which reinforces moral principles must be a significant part of the curriculum.
