ROTC - U.S. Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps Program
ROTC is offered on the IWU campus for those who sense a calling to serve our country in the military. The Depart of Military Science offers qualified undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to obtain a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army and to serve with the Active Army, Army National Guard or Army Reserves. Additionally, Military Science offers immersive learning experiences focused on preparing future leaders for the United States Army and managers for the corporate environment. Subjects offered in this program include the study of current military leadership, doctrine, rappelling, marksmanship, counseling, problem solving, managing resources, military history, and public speaking. All IWU students interested in studying military leadership may enroll in 100-level and 200-level classes without any obligation to enroll in the ROTC program.
The 100-level meet once a week for one hour. The 200-level meets twice a week for two hours. The 300-level and 400-level classes meet twice a week for three hours each session. Two days are dedicated to classroom lecture and a combined lab meets 10 times each semester. The lab and field training exercises involve all contracted cadets and applies classroom lectures into hands-on leadership training scenarios.
