USAFA Graduate Professional Development

Air Force Academy graduates are making their marks as top leaders in the military and business domains. Using their experience to hone and refine the leadership skills they initially acquired at the Academy, these graduates share their knowledge and best practices with the graduate community.

From our Chief of Staff:
The CSAF 2010 Reading List

"I am pleased to announce my 2010 reading list, which provides valuable ways for all Airmen to further their professional education and augment their leadership skills," Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz said.

"Coupled with our daily professional endeavors, academic development sharpens our edge and bolsters our ability as an Air Force and joint team," General Schwartz said. "Therefore, professional reading, in equal measure to physical training, continues to be vital to maintaining our initiative today and our preparation for the future."
