The University of Tampa works
together with the University of South Florida and the U.S. Navy to
provide opportunities for students to become Navy officers. The program
provides valuable leadership experience not found in the classroom.
The mission of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) is to
develop midshipmen mentally, morally and physically. The program
teaches the highest ideals of duty, honor and loyalty and prepares
students to become naval officers with the highest responsibilities of
command, citizenship and government.
The NROTC unit offers
participation through four programs: (1) the Navy-Marine Corps
Four-Year Scholarship Program, (2) the Navy-Marine Corps Two-Year
Scholarship Program, (3) the Four-Year NROTC College Program, and (4)
the Two-Year NROTC College Program.
Upon program completion,
graduates become naval officers who serve in aviation squadrons, on
surface ships, on nuclear-powered submarines, at naval installations
around the world and in numerous sub-specialties in the Marine Corps.
