The Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is an educational program designed to give men and women the opportunity to become Air Force officers while completing their degrees. The Air Force ROTC program is designed to prepare you to assume positions of increased responsibility and importance in the modern Air Force.
Air Force ROTC has been a part of the Air Force since its creation on September 18, 1947. It was only a short 10 months later, in July 1948, when the Air Force and Baylor University partnered in the creation of AFROTC Detachment 810 - one of the first Air Force ROTC detachments in the nation!
In 1996 and 2003, Detachment 810 was awarded the High Flight Award recognizing us as one of the top four detachments in America, and the best in the AFROTC Southwest Region. In 2008, we were selected as the #1 large detachment in the nation.
