Army ROTC Mission

Leadership Excellence

The U.S. Army Cadet Command is dedicated to the selection, education, training, and commissioning of college students, molding them into officers and exemplary leaders for the Total Army. We emphasize the core values of citizenship, national and community service, personal responsibility, and instill a profound sense of accomplishment in college students.

At Chicago State University, we firmly believe that leadership is a cornerstone skill that top-tier employers actively seek in their prospective hires. While numerous academic disciplines delve into leadership courses, they predominantly focus on its theoretical dimensions. Acknowledging the significance of theoretical grounding, our CSU Army ROTC program elevates this foundation by integrating rigorous, hands-on leadership experiences. As our students transition to graduation, they emerge not just prepared to spearhead teams in their chosen professions, but also possess the prowess to lead and inspire Soldiers within the United States Army.ROTC at CSU
