WELCOME ABOARD — THE JAYHAWK BATTALION
We make warfighters in the U.S. Naval Services. The outcome of successful completion of the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corp Program (NROTC) is an active duty commission as a Navy or Marine Corps officer. The NROTC program is a unique blend of the best traditions of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps, with both services represented in the unit staff and approach to training. We provide men and women in our program with the confidence and background necessary to lead in America’s Navy and Marine Corps and beyond.
With roots dating back to 1942, the Jayhawk Battalion has a long and distinguished history at KU. Midshipmen hail our program for allowing them to attend college as traditional students while receiving training vital to their success in the fleet. Better yet, the Jayhawk Battalion has an exemplary record of Midshipmen earning a commission into their warfare areas of choice.
