In the late 1970s, FHSU worked to establish a Military Science and Reserve Officer Training Cops (ROTC) program at the university. The first class enrolled in 1980 and the program was discontinued in 1986 due to low enrollment. In 2020, FHSU formed a new partnership with the Kansas National Guard to offer Officer Candidate School on campus at FHSU. This new partnership continues the tradition established with the original Military Science and ROTC program. This collection contains photographs and documents related to the original Military Science and ROTC program that existed from 1980-1986.
