Our Top Priority: Your Success as a Student
Our Office and this site seek to provide student veterans and current or prospective officer commissioning program participants with the tools and resources needed to succeed at Brown.
Since Brown's founding, the University has supported military veterans and helped students achieve their academic and professional goals, including military service. That tradition continues today.
Brown students have been proud and distinguished participants and graduates of Providence College's Patriot Battalion Army ROTC since 1951. With the passage of the post 9/11 G.I. Bill, Veterans have a renewed opportunity to combine their military experience with a Brown degree to give them the tools needed to lead and succeed.
