Veterans Serve Us. Higher Ed Must Serve Them
Catharine Bond Hill at SXSW EDU 2019
On Wednesday, March 6, Cappy Hill will join panelists Christine Schwartz (Service to School), Cristine Pedersen (Georgetown student), and Bruce Shahbaz (College Board) at SXSW EDU 2019 in Austin, Texas to discuss strategies for enrolling and graduating more veterans in the highest performing colleges. More information about SXSW EDU is available on the conference website.
About the panel
Veterans are among our most committed, talented citizens, and yet they are 50 percent less likely than others to enroll in our highest performing colleges, a step that offers the surest path to a degree and highest post-college earnings. It’s our duty to change this. Several colleges and foundations have put programs in place. We’ll share their experiences, providing a road map and accelerating the learning curve for other institutions to make a difference.
