About the Panther Battalion

West Gym

The Department of Military Science is home to the UNI ROTC Panther Battalion (BN), located in the West Gym at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA.

The BN is regularly recognized as one of the top 3 in the midwest and is in the top third of all BN's Nationally.

The UNI ROTC BN oversees the ROTC program at the University of Dubuque, in Eastern Iowa. The students from these two programs come together several times a year to conduct training.

For UNI students looking to finish their education at Allen College, UNI ROTC has a strong working relationship with Allen and ROTC offers many opportunities for students considering a career as an Army Nurse.

UNI Military Science classes are also available to students at Hawkeye Community College who are considering transferring to UNI to finish their degree. It is a great opportunity to get familiar with the campus and start getting to know other students on campus.

If you are interested in a career in the Army please contact Mr. Jon Thompson, Scholarship and Enrollment Officer, to find out what benefits and scholarships are available to help you achieve your education and career goals.
