About the Programs


"A question that is raised for military professionals is what are our responsibilities as soldiers when such things happen?"

About the Programs

Programs vary from four hours to multiple days and address issues of leadership, decision-making, and genocide prevention.  All programs provide an opportunity to engage with exhibitions, artifacts, experts, and case studies.

Topics for consideration include:

  • the critical factors that influence ethical decision-making in complex environments
  • the changing context for social and cultural military operations
  • the dynamics of genocide and mass atrocities

Over 33,000 military professionals have participated in these programs.  The Museum has worked with numerous military training institutions including the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, the Judge Advocate General Legal Center and School, the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

“Program materials directly relate to scenarios we may encounter in the future as professional military officers.”
