Biography

Welcome to Jeanne M. Holm Center for Officer Accessions and Citizen Development. Our mission is straight-forward: “We build leaders.” The Holm Center vision of the future to sustain “a diverse culture of leadership development focused on Continuous Learning, Enthusiasm, Pride, Compliance and Tradition” is what motivates us every day.

Holm Center provides coordinated leadership and policy direction for the Air Force's officer recruiting, training, and commissioning programs at Officer Training School and at Air Force ROTC detachments at 145 universities. About 80 percent of the new officers who enter the Air Force each year come through one of our two programs. Our staff also manages, supports and develops curriculum to train tomorrow's Air Force officers.

Holm Center also directs the Air Force's high school citizenship training program - Air Force Junior ROTC. We oversee 866 Air Force Junior ROTC units on high school campuses around the world. The aim of that program is to build better citizens for America. We do that today for over 105,500 cadets.

  • Officer Training School suspends public attendance for upcoming graduation

    Air University’s Officer Training School has suspended guest presence at the awards ceremony and graduation parade this week out of caution to minimize potential spread of COVID-19.

  • One JAG’s journey to becoming an Air Force Junior ROTC instructor

    What to do after retirement from the Air Force is a question that plagues many Airmen as they approach the end of their career. For one lieutenant colonel, an unsolicited email from the Air Force Personnel Center answered that question for her, and changed her life forever.
  • Airmen trade blue stripes for gold bars, silver wings

    Few things tell an Airman it’s time for a fresh uniform quite like swapping enlisted stripes for second lieutenant’s rank. For a pair of former airmen first class, now second lieutenants, their gold bars come with silver pilots’ wings.
