Army Reserve Officer Training Corps [R.O.T.C.]

Our Mission

     We partner with U.S. Army Cadet Command [USACC], other universities, and high schools to recruit, educate, train, and commission leaders of character for the Total Army to develop accomplished responsible citizens who value service to their communities.


Where we came from...

     University of North Florida Army R.O.T.C. was first established in 1972 commissioning roughly 18 Cadets a year. It was disbanded in 1996. In January 2009, we returned under the command of LTC Benjamin Jones with seven Cadets and one Cadre/Military Science Instructor [MSI]. Since then, UNF has become a steadily growing Army R.O.T.C. program since re-opening. In fall 2009, UNF increased to 25 cadets and three Cadres. Spring 2010, 56 Cadets and five Cadres. Students of Edward Waters College, Florida State College of Jacksonville, & Jacksonville University can also attend our program through enrolling in your respective University's Army R.O.T.C. course.
