Iowa State University's Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) department has won one of eight MacArthur Awards for the school year 2010-2011. 

The ISU department represents Cadet Command’s Third Brigade, which includes the ROTC program at Buena Vista University.

The awards, presented by the U.S. Army Cadet Command and the Gen. Douglas MacArthur Foundation, recognize the ideals of, “duty, honor and country” as advocated by MacArthur.

The award is based on a combination of the achievement of the school’s commissioning mission and its cadets' performance and standing on the Command’s national Order of Merit List and its cadet retention rate.
