According to the official CCAF-FCVI website, their mission is “to elevate the enlisted profession by advancing career-long technical and leadership abilities through degrees, diplomas, and related programs to support the recruitment, retention, career transition efforts, and mission readiness and readiness.


Stapp said Airmen are the Air Force’s strategic advantage, and they must be able to adapt, innovate and apply lessons learned to enable a culture of continuous improvement.


“I strongly believe that education enables Airmen to advance in their careers,” said Senior Airman Angel Colbert, plans and operations manager for the 97th Mission Support Group. “The pursuit of higher education benefits Airmen and the Air Force simultaneously.”
