The panel will discuss partnership strategies, success factors, curriculum review, relationship building and other key elements of providing successful educational opportunities through cooperation between educational institutions. The panel will discuss what each of their respective organizations do to fulfill their goals for strategic partnerships to enhance and benefit the military student. Among the topics discussed will be the educational programs at Norwich University, Fayetteville Technical Community College, and Tidewater Community College created to serve special operations forces and the partnerships constructed or underway to provide a continuum of educational opportunities for military personnel.
