The mission of Army ROTC is to commission the future officer leadership of the U.S. Army and to motivate young people to be better citizens. Any Cadet interested in developing leadership skills in a challenging environment will benefit from what Army ROTC has to offer, and there is no better Army ROTC unit than VMI’s Marshall-New Market Battalion.

Army ROTC is centered on leadership development, in both classroom and field environments, with individual feedback and counseling provided to each Cadet. Army ROTC sponsors a number of extracurricular Cadet clubs and activities, including the Cadet Battery, Ranger Platoon and the competitive Ranger Challenge.

Army ROTC is a demanding program that requires commitment from each Cadet, but the rewards more than equal the effort. Those Cadets who chose to serve, upon successful completion of the program and graduate from VMI, will commission as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard.
