The Aggie Battalion will be renowned for a standard of academic and leadership excellence that prepares our graduates to be commissioned and succeed as the future officer leadership of the United States Army.
To recruit, retain, develop, and commission the future officer leaders of the United States Army and motivate young people to be better citizens through support of local JROTC programs.
The objective of the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is to train, motivate and prepare selected students with potential to serve as Commissioned Officers in the Regular Army, Army Reserve or the Army National Guard. The program is designed to provide an understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles of military art and science and to develop leadership and managerial potential in the student. A strong sense of personal integrity, honor, and individual responsibility, and an appreciation of the requirements for national security are instilled in all students. Attainment of these objectives will prepare students for commissioning and will establish a sound basis for their future professional development and effective performance in the Army or civilian life.
Enrollment in the Department of Military Science courses is open to all students attending a college or university in the Greater Greensboro Consortium (Bennett College, Elon University, Greensboro College, Guilford College, High Point University, North Carolina A&T State University, and University of North Carolina at Greensboro). The Army ROTC program offers elective courses for undergraduate and graduate students leading to a commission in the United States Army. Students may compete for four-year, three-year, and two-year scholarships. The program also offers nursing scholarships on a competitive basis as a Partnership in Nursing Education (PNE) school.
