Army Logistics University campus

The ALU consolidates over 200 courses that were formerly offered by five Army logistics schools. The new organization comprises three distinct colleges: the Army Logistics Management College, the Logistics Leader College, the Technical Logistics College, and a consolidated Logistics Noncommissioned Officer Academy. All of these organizations have a different focus, but share the same mission to provide military education and training to Civilians, Officers, Warrant Officers and NCOs.

While it is a self-titled "University", Army Logistics University received accreditation status from the Council on Occupational Education (COE), recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.[2] The school, which despite its name, is no different from any other branch-specific training school within the US Army, and it is not authorized to grant any degrees or graduate certificates in any programs.

The Army Logistics University contains the Logistics Leaders College, providing military officers logistics training from second lieutenant to colonel. The college offers key functions courses including the Basic Officer Leader Course for Quartermaster, Ordnance, and Transportation Lieutenants; the Logistics Captains Career Course for Captains; key functional courses such as the Support Operations Course; and pre-command courses to prepare Lieutenant Colonels and Colonels for command of logistics formations.[3]
