ROTC Leadership Development 

The focus of the ROTC program is leadership development. Cadets learn leadership skills, problem solving techniques, decision making skills, planning and organizing skills, interpersonal communications skills, professional ethics and responsibilities, and other management skills.

Leadership labs and Leadership Development Exercises (LDX) supplement classroom work with practical leadership training and experience. Cadets are trained, coached and mentored by cadre with more than 20 years of experience.

It's an experience that you can't get anywhere else. Round out your college experience by participating in ROTC activities. You can have the better of two worlds, civilian and military, and get a college experience unlike any other. If you're interested in attending college while learning what it takes to become an Army Officer, ROTC may be right for you. In addition to teaching you valuable leadership skills, military training, and discipline, ROTC can also provide you with money for tuition and other expenses through scholarships.

The best part of this leadership development is that your career starts immediately upon graduation as you are commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, National Guard or Reserve and It is as easy to sign up for ROTC as any other elective class on campus. 

You can take the basic course of ROTC with no military service obligation.
