Arms and the Campus in 1975: Army ROTC in Transition.
Wright, Billy J.
The basic problem confronting ROTC is mission accomplishment--obtaining officers in sufficient numbers to meet Army requirements. Problems bearing on mission accomplishment are generally a reflection of the society as a whole. Although, for the first time in several years, this year's enrollment exceeds that of the previous year, ROTC is far from trouble-free. This document reviews the history and background of ROTC, discusses past and present problem areas, and assesses the program in light of the current national and international situation. The research is based on a literary search at the US Army War College Library, visits to two colleges, a review of current surveys, the results of 823 questionnaires received from 90 colleges, and information obtained from Department of the Army and training and Doctrine Command.
