Mission

CAC LD&E develops leaders to adapt and dominate in Unified Land Operations, assists the Training and Doctrine Commander in synchronizing Army Leader Development, supports strengthening of the Army Profession, and provides support to the Combined Arms Center, Training and Doctrine Command, Department of the Army and Joint Staff as directed.

Vision

LD&E is responsible for creating an institutional learning environment that is challenging, dynamic, free flowing and exciting. Such an environment is necessary to produce leaders of character who are capable of solving problems in a complex strategic environment, who trust the Army institution to reward their innovation and unleash their creativity. These same leaders must be worldly in their thought, historical in their perspective and able to expertly operate in a complex Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, and Multinational operational environment.
