As commander of the Air University, This was Kuter’s second assignment to Maxwell. Here, General Kuter set about improving officer education. He raised the Air Command and Staff School, formally ACTS, to a college level that instructed mid-grade officers in the application of air power. He also oversaw the Squadron Officer's Course for development of company-grade officers as well. Kuter developed the Air University along the models of actual colleges with a staff and faculty to handle all levels of professional military education in the U.S. Air Force. This proved to be somewhat of a golden age of education as Kuter helped bring back many of the senior leaders of World War II to speak to the student body.
