Leadership Lab

All cadets participate in the same leadership lab regardless of year group. In a similar progression to the classroom portion of Army ROTC, cadets will fill more challenging leadership roles as they advance in the program. First-year cadets will find themselves playing the role of a rifleman or basic soldier in a small unit. By the time cadets are seniors they will have experienced a number of roles, from squad leader to company commander.

The second portion of the leadership lab is physical readiness training (PRT). This takes place Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the UAA campus from 0630-0730. It is a structured physical exercise program outlined by the Army and implemented by cadets in the corps. All cadets will have an opportunity to plan, organize and execute this physical training.
