WHO: Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity
WHAT: Roundtable Discussion on Modern-Day Learning Avenues for Veterans
WHEN: 2:00 p.m., Thursday, March 9, 2017
WHERE: 334 Cannon House Office Building
Background: As the realm of higher education continues to evolve, the ways students are learning and the courses they are pursuing in modern-day society differs from even a decade ago. Although the G.I. Bill has been enhanced since its enactment in 1944, there are still many types of training and education programs that are still not accessible to student veterans through the G.I. Bill today.
This round table will explore the reality of higher education in today’s society, as well as opportunities for innovative learning and improving education benefits for future generations of veterans.
