UW’s Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps

ROTC serves the UW community by providing leadership development training on campus and potential career opportunities beyond college for students who pursue an officer commission in the United States Army. Financial incentives are also available for cadets.  We are committed to developing leaders not only for the military but also for civilian life.

    The Cultural Understanding and Language Program, aka CULP, is an Army sponsored study abroad program. Seven UW Army cadets spent part of their summer in Lithuania, Guyana, Ireland, Senegal and Saudi Arabia. Cadets learned about the country's military and conducted a language and cultural exchange.

  • Cadet Orientation Week

    September 19, 2014

    We kicked off the school year a week early with Cadet Orientation Week. Cadets returned from summer training and vacation to help integrate 25 fresh faces into the program. These new cadets who ranged from incoming freshmen to academic juniors had four days of introduction to ROTC.  The week culminated on a high note with seven cadets contracting into the program. Welcome back, Huskies!
