Commander’s Welcome

Lt Col Skarda
Commander Lt Col Skarda

Welcome to Air Force ROTC Detachment 535, based out of Syracuse University in beautiful upstate New York! Though we are located on the campus of Syracuse University, we’re proud to serve the greater Syracuse area, which includes 10 cross-town schools located across four counties. Our mission is simple: Inspire, empower, and develop leaders of character for the Department of the Air Force. Whether you’re a prospective cadet looking to serve a higher purpose, a parent looking for scholarship opportunities for your student, or simply a curious visitor, we’d love to hear from you.

Lt Col Mike Skarda, USAF
