Leadership Training Program

The Corps of Cadets leadership training program develops well-educated leaders of character who are prepared for the global leadership challenges of the future.

Why The Corps?

The Corps is the largest, oldest and most visible student organization and leadership training program at Texas A&M.  It is also one of the largest uniformed bodies of students in the nation.

The Corps of Cadets is Texas A&M’s premiere leadership training program and delivers the ultimate Aggie Experience.  It starts with a world-class university with over 140 years of tradition and builds on that foundation, guiding cadets in developing their leadership abilities while enjoying the benefits of being at one of the nation’s premiere universities.

A majority of our leadership training graduates pursue a career in the public or private sector; however, the Corps of Cadets consistently commissions more officers than any institution other than the service academies.  An average of 40-45% of our cadets pursue a military commission in the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.
