Salisbury University students on campus

Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC)

Effective immediately Salisbury University will no longer be able to enroll new students into the SU ROTC program. The US Army Cadet Command has made the decision to reallocate resources that were used to support the SU program to other parts of the country. While we here at SU are extremely disappointed in this decision, we are still very supportive of the mission of the US Army ROTC program and appreciative of the leadership of the University of Delaware Blue Hen Battalion for their continued support. Please feel free to contact Dr. Douglas DeWitt at or (410) 543-6286 if you have any questions and/or if he can help you regarding ROTC.

Congratulations to all our newly commissioned Second Lieutenants! Class of 2022

Charlie Company

Salisbury University ROTC Bravo Company logo

Our program was originally established when Salisbury University was recognized as a state school, but was reinstated in 2008 and has continued to grow since then. The Salisbury University Charlie Company operates underneath the University of Delaware Fighting Blue Hen Battalion. Most training events take place right here in Salisbury, but we also have the opportunity to travel up to our host school for larger events as well. With the help of the instructors and the ROTC cadre, Salisbury University cadets are challenged to learn tactical operations as well as leadership skills that cannot be acquired in a classroom setting. The Army ROTC program at Salisbury University has been commissioning quality officers since it was first founded.
