The Central Mindanao University Reserved Officers Training Corps (ROTC) Unit ranked 2nd as it underwent the Regional Annual Administrative Tactical Inspection (RAATI) on February 4, 2013 at the University Parade Ground.
RAATI aimed to test military skills and intellect of ROTC trainees through practical and written exams covering the entire ROTC instruction modules. This initiative was a move to uplift the ROTC program which highlights citizenship trainings and instills patriotism, moral virtues, respect for the rights of civilians and adherence to the constitution.

Schools evaluated this year included the Bukidnon State University, Mindanao University of Science and Technology, Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, Mindanao State University – Marawi and Central Mindanao University.
