Cadet Leadership Course

CLC (previously LDAC) is the culminating training event for an Army ROTC Cadet. All Cadets go to CLC in the summer between their MS III (Freshman) and MS IV (Sophmore) years. The 32-day camp incorporates a wide range of subjects designed to develop and evaluate leadership ability. The challenges are rigorous and demanding, both mentally and physically. They test intelligence, common sense, ingenuity and stamina. These challenges provide a new perspective on a cadet’s ability to perform exacting tasks and to make difficult decisions under demanding conditions.

The camp places each cadet in a variety of leadership positions, many of which simulate stressful combat situations. In each position, cadets are evaluated by platoon tactical officers and noncommissioned officers. In addition to demonstrating their leadership ability, cadets must meet established standards in physical fitness, weapons training, communication, combat patrols and additional military skills. Cadets must excel at camp to be competitive for Army commissions. For more information on CLC click  here.
