The mission of education at Olivet Nazarene University is to develop students into servant leaders. From the moment they take on the challenges of the Reserve Officer Training Program (ROTC) at Olivet, cadets learn what the U.S. Army, Olivet and Jesus requires of leaders.
As an Army ROTC cadets, students learn and practice principles and skills of military leadership, management, Christian values and selfless service to others. While the cadet is building expertise and confidence for the future, he/she is inspiring strength in others. This is an equal experience for men and women, with the exception of different physical fitness standards.
Areas of Study
Students who want to pursue a cause that’s bigger than themselves and are physically fit and are well-organized often find the military to be a good fit for them. Olivet prepares students academically and spiritually. ROTC prepares them physically, mentally and emotionally.

All About Leadership
Strong leadership skills launch students into their future careers — in the military and beyond. Cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army upon graduation from Olivet. They may serve with the U.S. Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard, or enter law enforcement as police officers or special agents with the FBI or CIA.
