Salisbury University Army ROTC

Salisbury University Army ROTC ROTC stands for Reserve Officer Training Corps. It’s an elective college program offered at over 1,700 colleges and universities across the United States that prepares young adults to become officers in the U.S.

Military. ARMY ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It gives you the tools, training and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition. Because Army ROTC is an elective, you can participate your freshman and sophomore years without any obligation to join the Army. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be commissioned as an Officer in the Army. At that point, you will have a wide range of interest areas you can specialize in called branches.

Mission: The U.S. Army Cadet Command commissions officers to meet the Army’s leadership requirements; and provides a citizenship program that motivates young people to be strong leaders and better citizens.

Physical training and confidence-building activities (i.e. rappelling, obstacle courses) also provide a chance for students to be physically and mentally challenged. This training is ultimately designed to give the college student the necessary leadership skills and “ability to think on one’s feet” required to be an Officer in the U.S. Army. Students who are interested in obtaining a Bachelors or Graduate degree may enroll in ROTC. Upon contracting and successful completion of the program, students are commissioned as Officers in the U.S. Army.

A Tradition of Excellence.

Officer training began at Salisbury University in 1979 when Army ROTC was established on campus as an extension center of the University of Delaware’s Army ROTC Program. For next 20 years SU ROTC produced numerous officers that would go on to hold positions of responsibility and prestige throughout the U.S. Army. This continued until 1998 when waning interest resulted in the shutdown of SU’s military science program. SU student’s who wished to enroll in ROTC were forced to make a weekly commute to the University of Delaware.

In 2008, after a decade long absence, ROTC returned to the SU campus. Every year since SU has commissioned a small, but growing contingent of cadets as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Army. Starting in the fall of 2019, SU will once again have its very own Assistant Professor of Military Science on campus five days a week to assist and mentor the cadets of the Seagull Detachment. A number of other exciting changes are currently underway in the SU Army ROTC program as well. The current growth of the U.S. Army means that there are many new and returning opportunities for cadets to apply for scholarships and specialized training programs. 2020 is set to be our biggest class yet since returning to campus!

Thanks for the support. Wicomico JROTC thanks you. Plus, you had under two minutes on the litter carry course. Great job with no practice!
Nice to see the school has a program again. They canceled it as I started at SU and restarted it after I left. I still joined and am currently a in the MSC as a ESEO. Anyone thinking of going medical after graduation, feel free to contact me.
