Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC) Unit Rutgers was established in March 2012 under a Memorandum of Agreement between the Secretary of the Navy, the Honorable Ray Mabus and then President of Rutgers, Dr. Richard McCormick. The first NROTC Program in New Jersey in over 40 years, we are immensely proud to have the opportunity to train future Navy and Marine Corps officers in the great State of New Jersey. Welcome to our command!
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 naval 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.
