Duty. Honor. Country.

A LEGACY OF LEADERSHIP

The University of the Philippines pioneered the concept of the citizen army in the country with the establishment of the ROTC program in 1912. The DMST (Department of Military Science and Tactics) itself was established on March 17, 1922.

Graduates of the ROTC have served with honor and distinction throughout UP ROTC’s almost 100 years of existence. Whether in the armed forces, civilian government, corporate world and the international community, the UP ROTC has left a legacy of service, leadership and excellence - keeping true to its cherished shibboleths of DUTY well performed, HONOR untarnished, COUNTRY above self.
