Students in WPI’s AFROTC program learn and live by the core values of the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Space Force.
Integrity first. Integrity is essential. It's the inner voice, the source of self-control, the basis for the trust that is imperative in today's military. It’s about doing the right thing when nobody's looking.
Service before self. Military service is not just another job—it's an uncommon profession that calls for people of uncommon dedication. A leader unwilling to sacrifice individual goals for the good of the unit cannot persuade others to do so.
Excellence in all we do. Our mission often involves the risk of human life and sometimes national security. The obligation to excel is a moral obligation for members of a professional military force.
