Welcome to The Air University

General of the Air Force Henry H. "Hap" Arnold said, "We must think in terms of tomorrow." At the Air University, we do just that.

The Air University is the Intellectual and Leadership Center of the Air Force and is an accredited military education system that produces the future by developing leaders and warfighters today ... for tomorrow.

All levels of Airmen, whether enlisted, officer, or civilian, as well as joint and coalition service members, are educated through in-residence or distance-learning courses to meet emerging geo- political challenges faced by the United States and our international partners. Cultivating adaptive, critical thinkers who will generate and disseminate new ideas is crucial to security, both here and abroad.

Much as the interwar-years Air Corps Tactical School encouraged innovative and forward thinking that helped shape the successful planning and execution of military operations in World War II, the Air University strives to be the epicenter of new ideas and the launching pad for Air Force, joint, and coalition leaders prepared to prevail in today’s fight, and to respond effectively to the uncertain security environment we will face in the years to come.
