About

Excellence in all we do

Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (Air Force ROTC) at IU helps you become your best—in your career and in everything you do.

We do this through leadership training and application, one-on-one mentorship, and a top-notch IU education—all on a campus you’ve only dreamed of.

After graduation, you’ll be ready to serve as an Air Force officer or a leader in any field you choose to pursue.

But more than that, you’ll be part of something great: a world-class university, a community of high achievers, and a legacy of leaders.

Detachment 215 at Indiana University Bloomington is commited to developing the best Air Force leaders and citizens of character dedicated to serving the nation.

Air Force ROTC alumni are saving lives and leading change all over the world. We continue to shape the country’s next great leaders.

Gain the confidence to acheive

You’re capable of anything. That’s why our leadership training will push you further, set your sights higher, and help you acheive everything you want to achieve. Air Force ROTC is where you’ll hone your strengths and develop new ones.

See how we shape leaders

Some of the biggest benefits that I have received from ROTC are the ability to take constructive criticism and to pick myself back up after making mistakes. In this environment we are taught that it is okay to mess up and that what is more important is the ability to make decisions and be confident in those decisions. As a person ROTC has helped me to become more confident and to understand my leadership style.

Air Force ROTC Detachment 215 hosted at Indiana University Bloomington maintains a crosstown agreement with Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) and Butler University. This means we offer IUPUI and Butler students the same excellent Air Force ROTC training and experience.

Cadets studying at IUPUI and Butler attend Leadership Lab and an Aerospace Studies course on the IU Bloomington campus.
