When enrollment declined with the outbreak of World War I, NYU worked with the Department of War to provide military training to fill the gap. In 1918, NYU established units of the National Army Training Detachment and the Student Army Training Corps (SATC).

The SATC was part of a nationwide program initiated by the Committee on Education and Special Training of the War Deparrtment. In all, 1,613 men participated at NYU.
