Building Bridges Across a University: Innovative Continuing Education Strategies for Military-Affiliated Students
Tue 15 Oct, 2019, 10:00–10:50
Presentation Description. Please provide a brief description of your session. This description will be used to describe your session in the conference program.
North Carolina is home to the third largest military population in the United States. East Carolina University (ECU), is uniquely and geographically positioned to help service members continue their higher education and prepare for promotion or post service careers.
During this session, participants will learn about the challenges service members face while trying to continue their higher education and how ECU is addressing their needs. Participants will be informed about the current, multi-modal continuing education strategies taking place at ECU (e.g. BS in Industrial Technology degree, BS in University Studies degree, AMP-Up, and off-model programming). We will provide an overview of how these distinct programs work independently and collaboratively with one another to support the educational goals of the military-affiliated student and how these may be applied at other institutions. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss and explore their own initiatives and share through small working groups.
