MONTICELLO — The Army ROTC program at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, which is part of a larger program hosted by the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, is being consolidated and will move to the Pine Bluff campus during the 2015 spring semester.

The announcement was made Oct. 7 by Dr. Jimmie Yeiser, provost and vice chancellor for academic affairs.

“While we regret the decision, we understand the need to consolidate the program on the Pine Bluff campus,” said Yeiser. “We have considered it an honor to have the Army ROTC presence on our campus and will work to assist ROTC students during this time of change. I plan to meet with ROTC students in the near future to assure them that UAM will continue to support their academic needs during spring registration, the ensuing spring semester, and for the duration of the ROTC presence on our campus.”

The current ROTC program started on the UAM campus in 2004.
