This thesis addresses the recruitment of African-American high school students for Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) programs, with an emphasis on programs located at Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The study seeks to determine if the current recruitment process is adequate to meet the needs of the Secretary of the Navy's "Enhanced Opportunities for Minorities Initiative." This initiative is a recruiting strategy designed to increase the number of minorities on active duty and to create a culturally diverse force that reflects the racial composition of the United States. This thesis draws upon information from Pers-61, Navy Recruiting Command, the Center for Navy Education and Training, and NROTC units, as well a survey conducted with current and former recruiters. Also examined are statements by the Chief of Naval Operations, Chief of Naval Personnel, Commander of Naval Recruiting Command and numerous other Flag Officers in briefings held at the 1998 National Naval Officers Association Conference. A major theme that emerged from the study is that the Navy should enhance its visibility and use more African-Americans in minority recruiting programs for the officer corps.
