Indiana Wesleyan University’s Army ROTC program will give you valuable real-world tools and leadership skills that will benefit not only your professional career but your personal life as well.
Army ROTC is an elective curriculum you take along with your required college classes. It prepares you with tools, training, and experiences that will help you succeed in any competitive environment. Along with great leadership training, Army ROTC can pay for your college tuition, too. You will have a normal college student experience like everyone else on campus, but when you graduate, you will be an officer in the Army.
Being an officer in the U.S. Army means you’re a leader, a counselor, a strategist, and a motivator. It’s similar to being a vital manager in a corporation. As an officer, you will lead other soldiers in environments and situations that are always changing. You’ll be driven to achieve success with your team on every mission.
The IWU Army ROTC program is a one-of-a-kind experience—one of the nation’s top leadership programs. The challenges you’ll face and the obstacles you’ll overcome will prepare you for future success.
Courses are as follows:
LDAC: Leadership Development and Assessment Course. All cadets will go to Fort Lewis, Washington the summer between their junior and senior years of college. In order to be commissioned, you have to successfully complete this training.
FTX: Field Training Exercise. All cadets will go to Camp Atterbury, Indiana to participate in this training which allows them to apply what they have been learning in the classroom and labs.
STX: Situational Training Exercise. Same concept as FTX but only one day in duration.
