We are committed to addressing this head-on across our Academy, and to be the example for the Air Force, the DOD, and society. I will not rest - nor will anyone under my command - until every cadet at our Academy is in an environment where they can focus on their professional or personal development. Those that fall short of this standard will be held accountable.<br/> Thu, 14 Feb 2019 14:51:00 GMT Lt. Gen.

In this unique role, I serve as the commander of a large and diverse military institution, and as president of a leading undergraduate university. During the last year, I have come to more deeply appreciate this distinctive institution and the various constituents it serves. I have found this position presents unique leadership challenges as we develop our cadets in the context of the profession of arms. It has been an inspiring journey not only intellectually but also personally, as I interact daily with young men and women who have chosen to serve their nation.<br/> <img src='http://media.defense.gov/2018/Sep/28/2002046027/82/55/0/180928-F-RB000-001.JPG' alt='Superintendent&#39;s Commentary' /> <br /> Fri, 28 Sep 2018 19:41:00 GMT Lt.
