Our Mission

Our mission is to Develop Quality Leaders for the Air Force and we accomplish this through an integrated training program combining academics, physical fitness, and character development. The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps has a strong tradition at Iowa State as it stood up its first cadet corps in January of 1949. Since then, we have called the Armory building our home. Cyclone Squadron has produced countless top-notch leaders who have made a difference in the world we live in today.
