Officer Education

Military instruction began at Cornell University in 1868 under the provisions of the Morrill Act of 1862. Since that time, officer education has been highlighted by the construction of Barton Hall in 1914 and the establishment of a formal Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) unit in 1917. The program evolves to keep pace with the latest military changes and emphasizes the development of leadership and managerial skills.

The Officer Education Programs prepare students for a commission as an officer in either the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps. Each service program is headed by a senior military officer who also serves as a full professor on the Cornell faculty.
