Marine Corps Logistics Education Program (MCLEP)
Professional academic research, buttressed by industry's firsthand knowledge of success and failure, is presented and coordinated by PSU faculty at this two-week program, held twice a year at Penn State's main campus in State College, Pennsylvania. The curriculum focuses on the integration of inventory management, transportation and distribution, order management, and maintenance within effective logistics chain management strategies. The course is designed to expose the student to both proven and emerging civilian industry best practices to enhance the effectiveness of commanders, executive-level logistics managers and staff at the service, component, joint, and Marine Expeditionary Force levels, and Marine Air-Ground Task Force members operating in a joint environment.
Periodic implications discussions throughout the course, facilitated by the School of Marine Air-Ground Task Force Logistics staff from Marine Corps University, provide the link to Marine Corps and Department of Defense issues and concerns. In one of the most valuable portions of the program, small teams complete case studies that require the intelligent application of newly learned supply chain management principles. The interaction among team members yields some of the most enduring learning points.
MCLEP continues to expose our logisticians to leading edge concepts and enjoys a strong reputation among other services and agencies. In an effort to optimize the learning environment, MCLEP includes students from the Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP), the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) Program, the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), U.S Army, and other government agencies and organizations.
