Vanderbilt University Army ROTC

Army ROTC began at Vanderbilt 1947 with a small Medical Corps unit for medical school students. During the 1951-52 school year, Chemical Corps and Corps of Engineering branch-specific curriculums were instituted. Companies A through D were affiliated with the Chemical Corps and Companies E and F were affiliated with the Corps of Engineers. These were phased out in 1953-54 by the present day general studies military science program.

Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) is a challenging series of college electives which teach leadership and management skills. The program prepares both men and women for responsibilities as Second Lieutenants in the active Army, Army Reserve, or Army National Guard upon graduation.
