History of the Charles River Battalion

Military education at Boston University dates back to World War I when the Student’s Army Training corps was established.  Units have been on campus since 1919, with the exception of a ten-year period during the 1970s.  Army ROTC’s presence at Boston University resumed in 1980 when it was accorded recognition as a host detachment.  More then three thousand military officers have received degrees from Boston University.  Some two thousand one hundred officers have been commissioned through Boston University’s Army ROTC program.
