Center for Leadership

The AUSA Center for Leadership educates, inspires, and connects AUSA chapters, ROTC units, and the Total Army.

AUSA's General (Retired) Bob Brown, AUSA’s President and CEO, established the Center for Leadership on October 1st, 2021 to help develop leaders of character and cohesive teams across the Total Army. The Center for Leadership participates in myriad forums and platforms to share leader development ideas and best practices including at the AUSA Leader Solarium and AUSA Leadership Staff Ride and throughout the “On Leadership” section of Army Magazine.


Deliver relevant and inspirational leader development programs to the Total Army.
