Historical View
  • ROTC was established at SCSU during school year
    1947-48
  • Enrollment in ROTC was mandatory for all
    able-bodied Freshmen Sophomore male students
  • Cross-enrollment with other universities was
    initiated in 1968
  • School initiated a five year program to enroll
    females in ROTC on a trial basis during school
    year 1972-73 (SCSU was one of ten institutions
    selected nation wide to participate)
  • First females graduated in 1976
  • The SCSU ROTC program has produced 10 Generals
    Officers to date (13 from the university
    graduates pool)

4
Where are We Now?
  • The SCSU ROTC program was nationally ranked and
    recognized as the largest producers of African
    American Officers for the US Army.
  • Because of the declines in ROTC enrollment and
    commissioning, SCSU is now one of the largest
    producers of African American Officers.
