ROTC To Stay.....For Now At UW-L
UW-La Crosse's ROTC Eagle Battalion Reserve Officers' Training program has
secured U.S. Army approval to continue on campus. The program will be re-evaluated annually with the next evaluation set for June 2015. Lt. Col. James Hill, ROTC Eagle Battalion commander said this is good news to receive especially after what they went through last year. In October 2013, the U.S. Army notified UW-L that the university's ROTC program was being considered for closure because of a reduction in Army resources. However, the Army rescinded its decision a month later and put the battalion on probation while it created a set of metrics to evaluate ROTC programs across the country.
