Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) is a component on hundreds of college and university campuses across the United States. The purpose of ROTC is to provide students interested in pursuing a career in the military with:
• An understanding of the fundamental concept of leadership, military art and science,
• An introduction to related professional knowledge, and
• An appreciation of requirements for national security. The dual roles of citizen/soldier and soldier/citizen are studied.
ROTC educational programs will enable cadets to better serve their country as leaders, as citizens, and in military service should they choose to pursue a career as an officer in the United States Army.
