Find your future in the United States Army



The University of Alaska Army ROTC program is an intensive leadership development program. Our mission is to recruit, retain, train and commission the future officer leadership of the United States Army.

The foundation of how we accomplish our mission is the precision recruitment of students of character who have what it takes to lead the finest soldiers in the world. The Nanook Battalion then takes these students and develops them physically, intellectually, and emotionally. We accomplish this through a combination of physical fitness training, challenging classroom learning, and the practical application of leadership skills in a wide range of environments. Our cadets are placed in leadership roles from their first semester and will fill a myriad of leadership positions throughout their time in the program.

Once complete, cadets will receive an officer’s commission in the U.S. Army. Some will go on to serve on full-time active duty, others will serve part-time in the National Guard or Army Reserves.

All will be leaders.
