Chris Mayer - Associate Dean & Academy Professor of Philosophy at the United States Military Academy (West Point)

I am currently the Associate Dean for Strategy, Policy, and Assessment at the United States Military Academy (West Point). My work focuses on our Academic Program Strategic Plan, strategic priorities and initiatives, shared governance structures, curricular change, integrative learning, accreditation, and assessing student learning.

I also serve as a Teagle Assessment Scholar, which has allowed me to collaborate and exchange ideas with colleagues from other colleges and universities., and a peer reviewer for the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.

My research interests include: ethical theory, military ethics, character development, political philosophy, assessment of student learning, Improving undergraduate education, and institutional change.

I am an advocate for the liberal arts, especially the humanities, because I have seen how they inspire students and transform their intellect.

I live at West Point with my wife and two children.

Feel free to contact me to exchange ideas or to collaborate on a project.
