Welcome to the Raider Battalion! On behalf of the Raider Battalion Cadets and Cadre, we welcome you to join our ranks. The instructors (Cadre) and staff assigned to the Raider Battalion serve selflessly to provide world-class military and leadership training. We follow a structured program of military history, leadership and national security. The Wright State University Army ROTC Detachment has been in existence since 1970.

The program started as extension program of the University of Dayton. In 1997, the Raider Battalion became a host program establishing its own traditions, history and lineage. The Raider Battalion has commissioned hundreds of officers into the United States Army where they serve proudly in the Regular Army (active duty), in the United States Army Reserve or the National Guard.

The Cadre and staff abide by the Wright State University’s foundational principles and the Army Values. The Raider Battalion Cadets are dedicated to succeed and excel physically, academically and in all the dimensions of leadership. We hope you become a part of our team and become part of the less than 1% of the U.S. population who serves our country as a commissioned officer!

“Wisdom, Strength, Unity...Raiders!”
