Mission Statement

The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps mission is to train and commission lieutenants for the Army of tomorrow. Army ROTC is a challenging, and exciting program of instruction that focuses on leadership development, not only in theory, but in practice. ROTC students earn practical leadership through actual experience and are campus and community leaders at many different levels. Army ROTC provides students the opportunity to learn about themselves and their potential, and challenges them to achieve ever greater heights of personal and professional leadership.

The Department of Military Science offers an opportunity for students to commission as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army, as well as the Military Science Minor.
