The Air Force ROTC program is organized and run by junior- and senior-level students in the program. It is a great honor and privilege as active duty airmen to be selected by our Air Force ROTC headquarters to provide leadership and oversight for these amazing young leaders. The cadre consists of the following:
Commander/Professor of Aerospace Studies
A senior leader on staff, the commander is responsible for the performance, development, and morale of all Active Duty members assigned to the unit. Most importantly, the commander holds the responsibility to ensure our program meets the Air Force ROTC mission—to develop quality leaders for the Air Force.
Operations Flight Commander/Associate Professor of Aerospace Studies
The operations flight commander is the primary interface with students as they plan and execute training activities, ensuring all learning objectives are met at a high standard. He/she also monitors student activity for safety and professional behavior.
Recruiting Flight Commander/Associate Professor of Aerospace Studies
The recruiting flight commander is in charge of working within the local community to educate junior high and high school students about our program. He/she ensures that a highly qualified group of freshmen is ready to start the program each and every year.
Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge Personnel and NCOIC Knowledge Operations
Caine Trabeau and William Nisbet
These two individuals oversee human resource issues for all active duty airmen and cadets. For example, they manage the scholarship program and cadet pay, process all required paperwork in order to join the program, become medically qualified, and ultimately receive a commission as an officer in the U.S. Air Force.
Administrative Assistant and Supply & Logistics Manager
Janet Martin and Michael Assini
These two professionals are TCU employees assigned to the Department of Aerospace Studies. They work with students to coordinate activities on campus, manage a complex schedule, and provide full inventory and issue support for textbooks and uniforms.
