DANTES Sponsored Programs: 2017 Year in Review

We did it! We successfully accomplished another year of supporting the voluntary education (VolEd) community as it helps service members reach their education and career goals. Together we helped 35% of service members take college courses and participate in VolEd programs. If you are involved in helping service members connect to voluntary education programs and benefits, we want to say THANK YOU for all that you do throughout the year! In this issue, we will highlight 2017 accomplishments. These shared accomplishments were made possible by the dedication, innovation, and efforts of all the professional voluntary education personnel, Defense education institutional partners, national testing agencies, and postsecondary organizations that are a part of the VolEd enterprise. Take a look at some of the things we were able to accomplish together during 2017… READ MORE!
