Department of Military Leadership
On behalf of the Provost’s Office at the University of Massachusetts, and the entire Cadre and Staff of the Department of Military Science, I would like to welcome you to the University of Massachusetts’ Senior ROTC "Minuteman Battalion” website. As current and potential members of the Minuteman Battalion, you have already taken a positive step on the road to success by expressing an interest in our program. We look forward to helping you make ROTC, "The Smartest College Course You Can Take" while here at University of Massachusetts or at one of our Partner Schools.
The Army ROTC program is both challenging and rewarding. The Cadre and Staff aspire to teach, coach, mentor and develop Cadets/Students to become future Officers, who embody the Warrior Ethos and selfless service that is the hallmark of service to the nation. If you find yourself striving to be a leader in the 21st Century who wants to make a difference to his family, community, and country, then we welcome you to take the first step to your future.
There’s no commitment required to come and join the Army ROTC program during your Freshman and Sophomore years. We encourage you to join us and gain some valuable leadership skills at the same time. However, if you’re ready to commit to a rewarding career, then an Army ROTC Scholarship may be available for you.
If you have any questions, or would like more information, please contact a member the Department of Military Science. Or better yet, come on over to the Army ROTC Building and we can sit and discuss it in person!
