Become part of a leading team.

Cadets in UW-Milwaukee’s Army ROTC program encompass a wide array of majors and skills. In very few places in the world, and even fewer organizations in college, are individuals able to develop and test their ability to lead.

With physical training, field exercises and weekend-long events, you will develop physically and mentally and leave college as an officer in the United States Army. This title is not given, but earned, and is highly sought after by businesses and organizations around the world.
