Moravian College students can participate in the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) in addition to their academic studies. This program cultivates the skills and opportunities to pursue a career as a commissioned Officer in the United States Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard upon graduation from Moravian College. 

The Moravian College ROTC program is part of the Steel Battalion at Lehigh University. Lehigh University is the host school for the military science instruction portion of the experience, as well as other related functions of the program. Moravian College shares in this partnership with nine other schools in the greater Lehigh Valley. 

ROTC students engage in classroom experiences that foster leadership qualities, teamwork, critical thinking, and self discipline. Hands-on opportunities like physical training, leadership labs, and field training complement the special academic experience. Over time, ROTC helps to instill a sense of character, courage, and patriotism in those that commit to the program. At completion, students are prepared for service in the US Army, as well as leadership roles outside of the military.
