Tuskegee now hosts NROTC program on campus

Seventeen Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) midshipmen are working toward their undergraduate degrees and commissions in the Navy and Marine Corps at the newest NROTC host school — Tuskegee University.

The Tuskegee NROTC unit was approved in the summer of 2009 and immediately began to enroll students and establish a unit presence on the campus.

“We are looking forward to a long and productive relationship with Tuskegee University,” said Rear Adm. Clifford S. Sharpe, commander, Naval Service Training Command (NSTC), Naval Station Great Lakes, Ill., who directly oversees the NROTC program.
