APSCU Responds To Harkin Release Concerning Military Tuition Assistance Data
Washington, D.C. - Former Congressman and president of the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) Steve Gunderson today issued the following statement in response to Senator Tom Harkin's release of Department of Defense military Tuition Assistance data:
"It's hardly surprising that military personnel are selecting private sector colleges and universities considering the flexible class schedules and tailored curriculum, which better address their needs as parents, soldiers and students. Our career-oriented schools provide them with access to training and skills-based education that allow our brave men and women to transition successfully into civilian life. With the economy struggling to gain momentum, any changes to this program would severely restrict the ability of our military to use their hard-earned and well-deserved benefits."
