Giving to the Military Science Department

Developing leaders of character is the goal of our Military Science Department and ROTC program. By providing students with exceptional training opportunities we prepare them for real world leadership. Giving to the Military Science Department and ROTC allows us to enhance the experiential nature of our training, increase the financial assistance we provide to students and update our facilities to offer a cutting edge environment in which to learn.
