Tuskegee University Army ROTC - Tiger Battalion Class of 2012 Cadets Swearing In as a Team to start off the new year as a unified force.

Thanks for visiting our site and for expressing some interest in the ROTC program at Tuskegee University.  First, ROTC is about developing leaders for our Nation - whether in the Army or in the civilian workforce.  Our ROTC program is all about world-class leadership. We focus on you the individual and work to develop your personal leadership skills through a series of classes, labs and leadership positions. We will teach you leadership skills and give you “hands-on” experience that will ensure your success as an Army Lieutenant in the Guard, Reserve or Active Army. These same skills will easily translate into successful supervisory or management skills in the corporate world.  If this sounds good to you, keep reading.

The Tuskegee Army ROTC program combines college courses in military science (leadership, management, conflict resolution, team building, and ethical decision making) with an exciting summer training experience to create a total program aimed at helping students to become better leaders, and ideally, effective Army officers.  Enrollment, however, is not limited to students interested in being military officers.  Anyone interested in fine-tuning his or her leadership ability is able to participate in the program during his or her freshman and sophomore years.

Participating in Army ROTC is an invaluable investment into one's future.  The skills developed through the Army ROTC program help to prepare our cadets for success in college, become better leaders upon graduation, and create opportunities for a promising future as leaders for our Nation.

If you are interested in challenging yourself, developing leadership skills, and/or improving your overall mental and physical toughness, please contact one of our cadres.  We would be happy to have you in the program or just give you a tour of our facilities.

Battalion History

The Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program at Tuskegee University has a rich and unique history. The TU ROTC program began in 1918, just after World War I, and has continued to produce Army officers since that time. It is a prestigious program that vaunts pioneers of African-American military service. Among its first Professors of Military Science are Benjamin O. Davis, Sr., the first African-American General Officer in the military, and Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., commander of the Tuskegee Airmen and first African-American General Officer in the Air Force. As befits its trail-blazing tradition, Tuskegee University ROTC has also produced six African-American General Officers for the Army. Today, cadets of the "TIGER" Battalion continue to enhance this legacy of pride and accomplishment.
