ROTC Centennial Sponsorship Opportunities

Join the Conversation. Impact the Future. Make History.

Panel discussionIn 1916 Norwich University made history as the first educational institution to make military instruction part of the curriculum. Today, this program—the Reserve Officers’Training Corps (ROTC)—is one of the most demanding and successful leadership programs in the country.

On April 21–23, 2016 we will bring together our nation’s leaders in the U.S. military and from the worlds of technology, cyber security, political science, policy, history and the media to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the ROTC.

We invite you to our campus in Northfield, Vermont to participate as a sponsor in this one-of-a-kind nationwide event! Join us as we discuss how the next generation of U.S. leaders will rise to address our nation’s security on a global stage.

Why Sponsor?

As a sponsor you will have the unique opportunity to market your brand to a target audience of 5,000 engaged participants—2,000 on-campus attendees plus thousands of online viewers—who have a vital and shared interest in the security of our nation.

Many of the symposium’s major events—including the keynote presentations, the panel discussion, and select classroom discussions—will be streamed live online. The audience will include on-campus attendees as well as provide marketing exposure to staff, faculty, and students in other locations:

  • Senior military colleges and service academies
  • Colleges and universities with ROTC programs
  • Industry company branches throughout the U.S. and internationally

Become a sponsor and you will align your brand with Norwich University: an institution steeped in military tradition with a commitment to service and a strong reputation for preparing our nation’s top leaders.

We look forward to your participation in the ROTC Centennial Symposium in April 2016!
