Values-based leadership in action

The Shelton Leadership Center’s mission is to inspire, educate, and develop values-based leaders committed to personal integrity, professional ethics, and selfless service.

About The General Hugh Shelton Leadership Center

The Shelton Leadership Center was founded in 2002 by General Hugh Shelton following his retirement as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. His desire to give back to his alma mater, North Carolina State University, prompted him to initiate a scholarship program. Soon, his efforts grew to include educational programs, camps, and organizational development training focused on developing the next generation of values-based leaders.

The Shelton Leadership Center’s values-based leadership development programs now reach youth, college students, and professionals at NC State University and other higher education institutions, corporations, government entities, nonprofits, and youth development organizations. His values-based leadership approach is based on five cornerstones: honesty, integrity, diversity, compassion, and social responsibility.
