The Warfighter Effectiveness Research Center (WERC) is the organization that oversees and coordinates research activities within the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership. The Center has a number of research streams that represent a diverse range of disciplines including: Counseling, Human Factors Engineering, Leadership/Organizational Psychology, Neuroscience, Social Psychology, and Sociology. All of our studies are led by the DFBL faculty, but when possible, cadets contribute to the WERC’s research efforts as part of their academic coursework. If you would like to find out more about the Center, please contact the Director, Lt Col Chris McClernon (Christopher.McClernon@usafa.edu).
