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 than three thousand Army officers have earned commissions through Boston University, and Boston University Commissionees have served in all major conflicts since World War I.
