"Dare to Lead!"

Army ROTC is a gateway for those that want to become an Officer. It also allows students the opportunity to learn useful leadership skills that can be applied in the boardroom as well as the battlefield. Students that are accepted to our affiliated universities can decide what they want out of ROTC and design their path to achieving their goals.

The first set of Military Science classes introduces students/cadets to the personal challenges and competencies that are critical for effective leadership. Focus is placed on developing basic knowledge and comprehension of the U.S. Army's Leadership Dimensions while gaining a "big picture" understanding of the Army ROTC program, its purpose in the U.S. Army and our nation, and its advantages for the student.  As the academic year progresses, the courses delve deeper into leadership fundamentals such as setting direction, problem solving, listening, presenting briefs, providing feedback and using effective writing skills. Students/cadets are also exposed to key fundamentals of skills required to be successful as an MS II cadet; namely, military map reading and land navigation, and small unit operations/leadership drills.

The next set of courses explores the dimensions of creative and innovative tactical leadership strategies and styles by analyzing historical case studies and engaging in interactive student exercises. Focus is on continued development of the knowledge of leadership values and attributes through an understanding of rank, uniform, customs and courtesies. It examines the challenges of leading in complex contemporary operational environments. Students/cadets are exposed to more complex land navigation/map reading tasks, as well as more advanced small unit operations/ leadership drills. Cadets develop greater self awareness as they practice communication and team building skills. Cadets begin to analyze and evaluate their own leadership values, attributes, skills, and actions. Primary attention is given to preparation for LDAC and the development of both tactical skills and leadership qualities.

The third block of courses uses increasingly intense situational leadership challenges to build cadet awareness and skills in leading small units. Skills in decision-making, persuading, and motivating team members when "in combat" are explored, evaluated, and developed. Cadets are challenged with more complex leadership issues to further develop, practice, and evaluate adaptive leadership. Cadets continue to analyze and evaluate their own leadership values, attributes, skills, and actions in preparation for the Leadership Development and Assessment Course (LDAC). There is also an emphasis placed on honing oral and written communication skills and mastering group dynamics while conducting tactical and Garrison operation orders. Primary attention is given to preparation for LDAC and the development of both tactical skills and leadership qualities.

The final series of courses develops cadet proficiency in planning, executing, and assessing complex operations, functioning as a member of a staff, and providing leadership performance feedback to subordinates. Cadets are given situational opportunities to assess risk, make ethical decisions, and provide coaching to fellow ROTC cadets. They explore the dynamics of leading in the complex situations of current military operations and examine differences in customs and courtesies, military law, principles of war, and rules of engagement in the face of international terrorism. Aspects of interacting with non-government organizations, civilians on the battlefield, and host nation support are examined and evaluated. The ROTC curriculum culminates with a capstone "hands-on" small unit leadership exercise which tests the cadet's tactical, technical and leadership skills utilizing an intense, realistic tactical scenario based on actual military operations in the contemporary operating environment of the 21st century. Emphasis is placed on officership and preparing to be a commissioned officer.
