Naval ROTC Events

Dear alumni,


Welcome to the Vanderbilt Naval ROTC Alumni Association website. Vanderbilt University has a proud tradition of educating military officers in support of America. Almost 3,000 living Vanderbilt alumni are either serving in the Armed Forces or are veterans - fully 5% of today’s undergraduate alumni. Since its founding during World War II, Vanderbilt’s NROTC Unit has commissioned on average 25 Navy and Marine Corps officers each year. Many of these alumni have gone on to serve as distinguished leaders both in the Naval service and later in government, industry and other capacities. Vanderbilt NROTC alumni are truly: “Worldwide in our Nation’s Service.” The Vanderbilt NROTC Alumni Association is an independent organization whose mission is to support the NROTC Unit at Vanderbilt; to recruit and mentor midshipmen; and to connect NROTC alumni with the Unit, one another and the University. The association strongly believes that ROTC should be active in the life of Vanderbilt and that the University should continue to do its fair share in educating first-class officers to serve our country.
