We work on a bipartisan basis to advocate on behalf of military-connected students to ensure they have access to high quality education, leading to viable career opportunities. We advocate for better college quality and student outcomes; strong accountability measures to ensure colleges provide a robust return on investment; student protections; and for the integrity and success of key federal programs that support military-connected students, such as the GI Bill, Vocational Rehabilitation, and Defense Department Tuition Assistance.
