About Islander Army ROTC

Teaching the Leaders of Tomorrow

The U.S. Army ROTC program here at Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi has a simple mission: to train the future leaders of the Army. We have a proven track record of doing so, with excellence.

Islander ROTC: A Proud History—A Bright Future

ROTC training began in South Texas at then Texas A&I University in 1951. The program expanded to then Corpus Christi State University in December 1978 as the Javelina Battalion's Charlie Company.

Del Mar College was added to the Charlie Company in the spring of 1984. In 1993, the University changed its name to Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi. In September 2006, in recognition of the outstanding contributions and potential to the U.S. Army, the TAMUCC Islander Army ROTC was formed.

Even though the names have changed, the mission of ROTC has remained the same: to develop the future leaders of our military and this great nation of ours.
