University of Dayton

University of Dayton, Cadre

President Dan Curran:  Since 1917, the Army has been training officers at the University of Dayton. For over 85 years this vital link between civilian and military training has and continues  to be a significant principle in our democracy by providing our University an opportunity to strengthen our nation’s defense.  I support  Army ROTC on this campus because it is a valuable part of the outstanding educational choice at this institution.  Leadership experience gained in Army ROTC will be a valuable addition to your overall education which you will use throughout your lifetime.  Army ROTC  represents an important opportunity on this campus and one I enthusiastically support.  I hope you select the University of Dayton because this University, like Army ROTC, can provide a rich and rewarding education to help you achieve success.
