Air Force ROTC, Detachment 790

Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) is dedicated to developing leaders of tomorrow who will go on to fulfill the Air and Space Force missions, represent our core values, and live up to the rich history of Air Force ROTC. The Air Force ROTC program develops leaders by preparing students to become officers in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force while earning a college degree. In AFROTC, you’ll not only build lifelong friendships, but you may also have the opportunity to pay for school through our scholarship programs. Most importantly, unlike many other college students, you’ll have a rewarding career waiting for you after graduation. We are located on the Tennessee State University (TSU) campus, just 10 minutes from Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt students who join our program will travel to our Detachment headquarters on the TSU campus for ROTC events. If you are interested in embarking on the adventure of a lifetime, please contact us at (615) 963-5931 for enrollment information.
