University of Missouri Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) students are here to achieve 2 goals:
- a college degree
- a commission in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps.
The Mission of the Naval ROTC Unit headquartered at the University of Missouri is to develop Midshipmen morally, mentally and physically, and to imbue them with the highest ideals of honor courage and commitment. Our goal is to commission as officers, college graduates who possess both a liberal and technically professional background, awareness of human relations, a motivation towards a career and the potential for further development in mind and character needed to assume the highest responsibility of command, citizenship and government.
