The kind of officers we are looking for

Selfless leaders who value diversity and create an ethical command climate through their example of personal integrity and moral courage.

Mentally resilient and physically fit officers, who inspire their team to accomplish the most challenging missions, including leading in combat.

Technically and academically proficient professionals with a commitment to continual learning.

Critical thinkers and creative decision makers with a bias for action.

Effective communicators.

Adaptable individuals who understand and appreciate global and cross-cultural dynamics.

Role models dedicated to the profession of arms, the traditions and values of the Naval Service and the constitutional foundation of the United States.

VADM Jeff Fowler

USNA 78, Superintendent U.S. Naval Academy
