The Kennesaw State Naval ROTC serves as part of the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps Unit - Atlanta Region Consortium, which trains and mentors midshipmen in both the Georgia Institute of Technology Battalion and the Morehouse College Battalion.

The Naval ROTC Georgia Institute of Technology Battalion is comprised of students who attend Kennesaw State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Georgia State University. The mission is to develop midshipmen mentally - morally and physically - and to imbue them with the highest ideals of duty and loyalty, with core values of honor, courage, and commitment. NROTC commissions college graduates as Navy and Marine Corps officers who possess a basic professional background, are motivated toward careers in the naval service, and have a potential for future development in mind and character - so as to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship, and government.
