The Haworth College of Business is a place where Bronco cadets transform into leaders. The Department of Military Science and Leadership prepares cadets for a rewarding future by supplying the tools, training and experiences that will help them to succeed in any environment.
The department does so through the support of Army officers and non-commissioned officers, leadership development training and extensive scholarship assistance for four-year degrees. This would not be possible without philanthropic support from alumni and friends.
When we come together to invest in every student’s success, we give them what they need to be their best in the classroom, the community and industry. Making a gift is one of the best and easiest ways to be a part of what makes the Haworth College of Business great today, for a lifetime of leadership opportunities for students and graduates.
