Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is a four-year college-based program designed to educate and train young men and women to become Officers in the United States Air Force.  Each semester, cadets participate in Aerospace Studies, Leadership Laboratory, and Physical Training, where they will grow mentally and physically while acquiring strong leadership skills that will benefit them when they become an Air Force Officer and in life.  Air Force ROTC offers numerous programs and scholarship opportunities for students, which leads to an academic degree and a commission in the Air Force as a second lieutenant.

The Air Force ROTC program at the University of Portland is one of the oldest programs on campus with a prestigious history of more than 65 years.  UP’s outstanding reputation and its continued support of AFROTC have attracted some of the best students in the nation to our program.  This fact combined with a top-notch cadre gives our cadets the ideal atmosphere in which to participate in AFROTC.
