Capt. Andre Burrell

Captain Andre Burrell teaches and directs the ROTC program at James Madison University. But it was the research he did while getting his masters’ degree at the University of Louisville that impressed his professors.

Burrell found disparities in the way women are treated in ROTC programs. He outlined ways the Army can foster more inclusion and promotion of women while improving his own teaching and willingness to speak up for change on his campus.
