NROTC History at Jacksonville University
On 23 September 1971, the first NROTC Unit in the state of Florida was formally dedicated during ceremonies at Jacksonville University. Jacksonville University is one of four Florida universities among seventy-seven colleges and universities in the United States which offer NROTC training. The Jacksonville NROTC Unit has commissioned Navy Ensigns and Marine Corps Second Lieutenants for service in a wide variety of warfare disciplines, including surface warfare, submarine warfare, naval aviation, nursing, nuclear power and Marine Corps occupational specialties.
We hope you will make plans to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Jacksonville University's NROTC Unit in Jacksonville, FL as part of our 2021 Homecoming & Family Weekend.
