The focus is on developing cadets' tactical leadership abilities to enable them to succeed at Army ROTC summer Advanced Camp. Cadets also participate in a physical training program. They must either meet the prerequisites (MSL 100/200-level courses), attend Basic Camp, or substitute past military experience with the approval of the Professor of Military Science. All cadets must take the Advanced Leadership Laboratory course to fulfill Army commissioning requirements.
