Valparaiso University has an enrollment agreement with the University of Notre Dame enabling Valparaiso University students to participate in their Air Force ROTC program.
The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is an educational program designed to give men and women the opportunity to become an Air Force Officer while completing a degree. The Air Force ROTC Programs develop leadership and management skills that students need to become leaders in the twenty-first century. In return for challenging and rewarding work, the Air Force offers the opportunity for advancement, education, and training, and the sense of pride that comes from serving one’s country. Upon completion of the Air Force ROTC program, students are commissioned as second lieutenants in the Air Force. Following commissioning there are excellent opportunities for additional education in a wide variety of academic fields.
Course numbers ending in 11 are taught during the fall semester; course numbers ending in 12 are taught during the spring semester. Leadership Laboratory is open to students who are members of ROTC or who are eligible to pursue a commission.
This minor is available to all students who are choosing to complete the Air Force Reserve Officers Training Corp (AFROTC) Program.
