Welcome to the Institute for Leadership

The Institute for Leadership at the U. S. Coast Guard Academy was founded in 2005 with the generous support of Dr. James S. Tyler. Having originally endowed the Tyler Distinguished Chair in Leadership Development, Dr. Tyler envisioned a venue at the United States Coast Guard Academy that would provide the opportunity for research, academic support and active engagement with the Corps of Cadets in order to optimize the development of leaders of character as graduates of the Academy.
