What is ROTC?

The Reserve Officer Training Corps program at UWL offers students the opportunity to develop leadership traits imperative to success in both the military and civilian sectors. Students learn firsthand what it means to lead and manage; keen analytical skills, use of short- and long range planning techniques, and excellent interpersonal management skills are all part of the ROTC experience.

Students from a wide variety of academic majors participate in ROTC, from information management, business, and finance to biology, exercise science, and education. In addition, the Eagle Battalion is proud to have several future lieutenants cross-enrolled from our partnership schools, Viterbo University, Winona State University, and St. Mary's University.

We produce quality leaders with the skills to excel, both in the workplace and in today's Army. For further information, feel free to explore our website, contact our scholarship officer, or visit us at 413 Wimberly Hall.
