Air Force ROTC

The best opportunity for you to get invaluable experience while you earn a college degree

Greetings from the Commander

Brig. Gen. Billy D. Thompson
Brigadier General Billy D. Thompson
Commander, Holm Center

Welcome to Jeanne M. Holm Center for Officer Accessions and Citizen Development. Our mission is straight-forward: “We build leaders.” The Holm Center vision of the future to sustain “a diverse culture of leadership development focused on Continuous Learning, Enthusiasm, Pride, Compliance and Tradition” is what motivates us every day.

Holm Center provides coordinated leadership and policy direction for the Air Force's officer recruiting, training, and commissioning programs at Officer Training School and at Air Force ROTC detachments at 145 universities. About 80 percent of the new officers who enter the Air Force each year come through one of our two programs. Our staff also manages, supports and develops curriculum to train tomorrow's Air Force officers.

Holm Center also directs the Air Force's high school citizenship training program - Air Force Junior ROTC. We oversee 866 Air Force Junior ROTC units on high school campuses around the world. The aim of that program is to build better citizens for America. We do that today for over 105,500 cadets.

Air Force ROTC is a college program offered at more than 1,100 campuses across the country. It prepares young men and women to become leaders in the Air Force, but it’s also much more. You’ll grow mentally and physically as you acquire strong leadership skills that will benefit you as an Air Force Officer and in life. It’s also a great opportunity to pay for school through scholarships. You’ll develop lifelong friendships and have unique experiences. Plus unlike many college students, you’ll have a position waiting for you after graduation at one of the world’s top high-tech organizations—the U.S. Air Force.
