Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today

Scientists and teachers, business leaders and policy makers, and officers for the US Army. USM and its Army ROTC program prepare students to be innovators and leaders for the 21st century. We produce lieutenants for the active Army, the National Guard, and the US Army Reserves. Each component has 16 branches that cater to multiple interests, including infantry, military intelligence, aviation, engineering, armor and medical services corps. Warriors wanted, each with a breadth of perspective who:

  • Demonstrate a capacity for excellence
  • Confident they will be competent Army leaders because of the rigor of the program
  • Committed to the Army for the duration and open-minded about further service

Michael Brohman: In a World of Circles and Squares at George Hurst Building - Gallery of Art and Design

"In a World of Circles and Squares" is solo exhibition by sculptor and University of Colorado, Denver instructor, Michael Brohman. Through the use of found and fabricated objects, Michael Brohman creates narrative works that confront the notion of divisiveness. The works in this show subtly categorize the viewer as possessing "inclusiveness" or "otherness." Personal belief systems and biases are reflected in how the viewer interprets the objects and imagery used. The pieces are beautifully crafted, quiet and contemplative, while at the same time, they can be raw and unsettling. Closing Reception: February 24 | 7 p.m. Made possible with support from the Nan and Ben Stevens Fund and Partners for the Arts.
