NROTC Berkeley is amongst the oldest ROTC units in the country. One of the original six ROTC units created, NROTC Berkeley was originally headed by the famous World War II fleet admiral, Chester W. Nimitz. Since then, NROTC Berkeley has been training college students in the disciplines of leadership, physical fitness, and military sciences. Over the years, the addition of cross-town affiliates, California Maritime Academy, University of California Davis, and Stanford has increased the number of officers the unit has commissioned into the Navy and Marine Corps. Today, the unit has four officers, two civilian staff members, and 60-70 midshipmen.
