Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) dates back to the spring of 1971. On 10 March 1971, AFROTC authorized the establishment of the 432nd AFROTC Cadet Squadron.
Detachment 432 has cross-town agreements with William Carey University (WCU) and Pearl River Community College (PRCC). That means as long as you are a full-time student at WCU or PRCC, you can enroll in Air Force ROTC at The University of Southern Mississippi.
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.
