    ROTC plans to diversity its student base

     

    WASHINGTON- The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program – widely known on college campuses as ROTC — is expanding to cover a more geographically and economically diverse student base, says retired Army Gen. Jack Keane.

    ROTC is the major military commissioning force in the United States, according to Keane.

    The program was created to ensure that our country had an army and officers that reflected the nation, Major Gen. Jefforey A. Smith said.

    ROTC officials want to expand to more universities to give students from many walks of life a chance to learn more about the U.S. Army.
