National Service Training Program (NSTP)
CMU as a system encourages possible actions that can enhance students’ compassion and patriotism. Thus, the university strongly supports the National Service Training Program (NSTP). The program encourages the youth to become civic and/or military leaders and volunteers whom could be called upon by the nation in cases their services are needed. The NSTP is composed of three different components, namely: Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC), Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) and Literacy Training Service (LTS).
