New Mexico Military Institute (N.M.M.I.) is a state-supported educational institution located in Roswell, New Mexico, United States. One of five military junior colleges in the United States, it is the only state-supported military college located in the western United States. NMMI includes a college preparatory four-year high school and a two-year junior college. Students who attend NMMI are referred to as Cadets.
NMMI is the only state-supported co-educational college preparatory military boarding high school (grades 9-12) and junior college in the United States. Academic school years begin with about 900 and 980 cadets enrolled, 95 percent of whom go on to four-year universities. The school's 2-year Army ROTC Early Commissioning Program (ECP) commissions approximately 30 cadets each year as US Army 2nd Lieutenants, and almost 100 cadets each year go to one of the five major United States Service academies.
The school's motto is "Duty, Honor, and Achievement." The school's athletic teams are the Broncos (junior college) and the Colts (high school). The school's colors are scarlet and black. The Cadet Honor Code, which was voted into place by a unanimous vote of the Corps of Cadets in 1921, states "A Cadet Will Not Lie, Cheat, or Steal, Nor Tolerate Those Who Do" and is administered by an Honor Board of Cadets, advised by Cadre and Staff.
