Taskforce Identifies Best Practices Colleges and Universities

The Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities formed a “Blue Ribbon” Taskforce to review college practices, policies, and procedures to determine how colleges and universities can best serve military service members, veterans, and their family members. The task forces mission was to ensure that those using their postsecondary education benefits are provided with the quality education to which they are entitled at every institution of higher education. The taskforce was comprised of a broad group of individuals who share a common commitment towards the education of service members and veterans representing a diverse range of institutions, including non-APSCU members, as well as representatives of nationally-recognized leadership organizations in the area of military and veteran postsecondary education. The taskforce was specifically charged with identifying, discussing, and documenting the very best postsecondary education practices and support services that meet the specific needs of military and veteran students. The primary objective of the taskforce was to publish a set of recommended institutional standards and associated operational practices that foster persistence, program completion, and other factors that will enable the military and veteran student population to achieve its academic and professional goals.
