Senior Leadership

The NROTC Program was established to develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty, and loyalty, and with the core values of honor, courage and commitment in order to commission college graduates as Navy and Marine Corps officers who possess a basic professional background, are motivated toward careers in the naval service, and have a potential for future development in mind and character so as to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government.

Our highly trained and qualified staff is fully committed to ensuring the ability of the next generation of Naval Officers to be capable of winning wars, deterring aggression, and maintaining freedom. Click to read their biographies.
