An unprecedented number of men and women in uniform are incorporating the college experience with their active-duty military experience and a number of veterans are looking at postsecondary education as a vehicle for moving from active duty to their future careers. Diverse: Issues In Higher Education is celebrating Veteran’s Day by devoting the October 19, 2017 edition to the growing population of men and women in uniform and to our veterans pursuing higher education.
The edition will take a nuanced look at:
Policies affecting the educational aspirations of the military community in these changing times.
How the U.S. Department of Education’s recent efforts to roll back certain student borrower protections will impact veterans seeking to use their GI benefits to pursue higher education.
Military programs & services offered to enhance academic pursuits.
