Welcome to the Army ROTC program at University of Central Missouri. More than 150 students of the "Fighting Mules Battalion" take Army ROTC courses on campus every year. The UCM Army ROTC Program has consistently been recognized locally and nationally as one of the best ROTC Battalions in the nation. Our program continues to grow and prosper, but only because of the high caliber of our cadets.
The UCM ROTC Battalion provides colorguards and cannon crews for sporting and special events on and off campus. The department hosts several training and rappelling events in conjunction with picnics and cookouts for individuals enrolled in ROTC. The department is home to one of the top Ranger Challenge Teams in the tri-state area. The Ranger Challenge Team is an elite group of cadets who train hard and compete against other schools. Likewise, other activities at UCM ROTC are Color guard, Cannon Crew, Push-Up Crew and the Bataan Memorial Death March Team, which is in the top five nationality.
The department is able to offer scholarships in many different majors, to include nursing. The Fighting Mules Battalion has established several different entry programs to suit the under-grad, graduate students,
non-prior service, and prior service students. Any questions, please call CPT Shaun Edwards at 660-543-4863.
The professor of Military Science at UCM has several incentive awards available to him in the form of room and board scholarships, and cash awards. These incentives are awarded to students in all levels of ROTC (MSI, II, III, IV) based on academic, physical fitness and participatory excellence at all four course levels.
