Title:Paving the Road to Retention: Saluting the Inherent Attributes of the Online Military Learner by providing a Democratic, Equitable education.
Description:The unique training and combat experiences service members undergo provide them with more than military skill alone. Learned qualities such as perseverance, leadership, self-discipline, and commitment are identical to characteristics needed for college success. Institutions can build support infrastructures which capitalize on the assets of the military, rather than the common practice to focus on the deficits. Education is not one-size-fits-all. Join us to see how institutions can salute our military by providing a paved pathway to college success.
