  Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies
The Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at West Point (CHGS) educates the Corps of Cadets about genocide and mass atrocity and inspires them as officers to the cause of prevention. Intrinsic to this mission is the imperative to better educate the country’s current and future military leaders on how genocides have occurred in the past and what can be done to prevent them in the future.

West Point’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies is the only center of its kind at the service academies and operates as an inter-academy and inter-service hub. The Center links all branches of the military, including the service academies, the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) and Department of Defense (DoD) professional military education programs through research, interdisciplinary curricular development, and common programming for the development of military leaders. As a creator and facilitator, the Center serves as a key resource for the DoD as the nation seeks to find better means of detecting and preventing mass atrocity. The Center further connects the Armed Forces with civilian academic institutions and non-governmental entities world-wide. The unparalleled reach of the CHGS makes it distinct, allowing our country’s current and future leaders to think deeply about the causes, contests, and consequences of genocide.
