A Proud History-A Bright Future

The Edinboro University of Pennsylvania ROTC Battalion has been proud to help develop the leaders of tomorrow.

The Battalion

Edinboro University Army ROTC has commissioned over 200 officers throughout its 30-years history for service in our nation's Army. Army ROTC provides a select number of our university students with values and skills that contribute to success in both college and career. These values and skills are based on the core values of the Army, and also form the foundation for good citizenship--loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage. Additionally, Army ROTC develops leaders of character for our nation and our Army. The young men and women who earn commissions through Army ROTC will be the leaders our citizens can rely on to protect our nation against very determined enemies in a challenging and complicated national security environment.
