Federal Agencies Schedule Webinars to Discuss Executive Order on Military and Veterans Education

June 04, 2012


​The departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs and Education, in conjunction with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission, will present two webinars to discuss the recent executive order on Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses, and Other Family Members.

The executive order is designed to ensure that service members, veterans and dependents considering higher education have the information they need to make good decisions and are protected from deceptive recruiting practices by institutions only interested in students for the federal funds they bring in.

The webinars will give college and university staff specific information on the implementation process as well as the opportunity to ask questions about the executive order.

The agencies will host two separate webinars:

June 7 from 2:00–3:30 p.m. EDT

June 8 from 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. EDT

Please submit questions in advance of the webinar, no later than noon, June 5, to
