ROTC at Utica College



Army ROTC


Legacy & Value



WITH STRENGTH COMES RESPONSIBILITY

Officers in the Army possess the skills necessary to lead others through the most challenging of circumstances.

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) was born when President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Defense Act of 1916. Since its inception, Army ROTC has provided leadership and military training at schools and universities across the country and has commissioned more than a half million Officers. It is the largest commissioning source in the American military.

Army ROTC is a diverse group of men and women with more than 20,000 Cadets currently enrolled. Women have been an integral part of Army ROTC since the first group of women was commissioned in 1976. Today, women constitute 20 percent of the Cadets.

Army ROTC has a total of 273 host programs with more than 1,100 partnership and affiliate schools across the country. It produces approximately 60 percent of the Second Lieutenants who join the active Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard. More than 40 percent of current Active Duty Army General Officers were commissioned through ROTC. Army ROTC provides Cadets with the character-building aspects of a diverse, self-disciplined civilian education with tough, centralized leadership development training.

Air Force ROTC Mission

Develop Quality Leaders for the Air Force. Air Force ROTC offers two educational programs – the Air Force Senior ROTC Program and the Air Force Junior ROTC Program. Air Force ROTC's headquarters is at Maxwell AFB, Montgomery, Ala.

The Air Force Senior ROTC Program is designed to recruit, educate and commission officer candidates through college campus programs based on Air Force requirements. Units are located at 144 college and university campuses throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. Students from schools near Air Force ROTC host institutions can attend classes through 1025 separate crosstown enrollment programs or consortium agreements.

Utica College Students

For interested Utica College students,  the Air Force ROTC program is based out of Syracuse University. As a full-time student, you can take courses here at Utica College as you normally would, but you will need to attend a military leadership course at Syracuse University, one day per week.
