    An article about Scranton’s ROTC Program in AJCU’s Connections highlights the strength of Jesuit teaching found in Scranton’s ROTC Program. An expert from the article appears below with a link to the full article.

    Contemplatives in action come to mind when Cadet Vincent Oliverio thinks of the way that Jesuit values are embedded in the ROTC Program at The University of Scranton. “When we see others being oppressed, we are taught to reflect, make decisions and take action when needed for the good of others,” says Oliverio, a senior computer engineering major.

    Cadet Ryan Haley sees Jesuit values in the ROTC’s commitment to excellence and the challenge to develop fully the talents of each individual. “Our commitment to develop ourselves and our commitment to become excellent leaders goes back to our concern for the individual, because we want to make sure that we are doing right for the people we serve,” says Haley, a senior business administration major.

    Lieutenant Colonel William White, professor of military science at Scranton, … goes on to describe the broader need for the key skills a Jesuit education provides. See full article here.
