The ROTC Centennial Symposium
2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) at Norwich University. In celebration of that historical milestone, Norwich will host the ROTC Centennial Symposium.
Designed to bring together thinkers and practitioners from all four branches of the military and the worlds of technology, cyber security, political science, policy, history and the media, the symposium will address the challenges posed by changes in how wars are fought and how the next generation of leaders will rise to address Americas national security on a global stage.
The two-day symposium features:

- A panel discussion titled Preparing for the Next Century of ROTC moderated by NPR Pentagon specialist Tom Bowman. Sponsored by the Olmsted Foundation.
- Classroom discussions and luncheon round tables with networking opportunities.
- World-wide synchronized JROTC 5K road race designed to challenge and engage other senior military colleges and service academies participation for Guinness World Records¨ distinction.
Keynote lectures and the panel discussion will be live streamed to create the platform for a national dialogue and learning confluence on the future of ROTC.
