Higher Education Leaders and Innovators to Attend the 2014 APSCU Convention: The Education Evolution
In advance of the 70th Anniversary of the original GI Bill®, APSCU released a white paper by Michael Dakduk, vice president of military and veterans affairs, “Defining Military-Friendly and Veteran-Friendly for Higher Education: Clarifying Ill-Defined Terms,” at the APSCU Convention. The paper, published in partnership with Pearson, proposes a framework for institutions that promotes transparency, compliance and support for student veterans, student servicemembers and their families.
PSCUs open doors to many of the 13 million unemployed and 90 million undereducated Americans by providing a skills-based education. To remain competitive over the next decade, we must identify between 8 and 23 million new workers with postsecondary skills. PSCUs are a necessary part of that solution, having produced over 800,000 degrees last year alone.
