Detachment Overview

HISTORYAF ROTC Det 14 small patch

The Reserve Officer Training Corps, or ROTC, was created by the passage of the National Defense Act in 1916.



Detachment 014 includes members from our main campus, the University of South Alabama, our Operating Location at the University of West Florida and our two cross-town affiliates, the University of Mobile and Spring Hill College.



Integrity First: Integrity is essential. It is the inner voice, the source of self-control, the basis for the trust that is imperative in today’s Air Force. It is doing the right thing when nobody is looking.

Service Before Self: Service in the Air Force is not just another job. It is an uncommon profession that calls for people of uncommon dedication. A leader unwilling to sacrifice individual goals for the good of the unit cannot convince other members to do so.

Excellence in All We Do: Our mission often involves the risk of human life—and sometimes national survival. The obligation to excel is a moral obligation for members of the Air Force.



Air Force ROTC's mission is to develop quality leaders for the Air Force.  We recruit, educate and commission officer candidates through college campus programs based on Air Force requirements.

The mission of the United States Air Force is to fly, fight and win—in air, space and cyberspace.
