Haslam unveils Veterans Education Task Force report

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WRCB) -
A report released Monday by the Veterans Education Task Force outlines ways to improve higher education opportunities for returning veterans. 

Recommendations made by the task force are: support standardized, statewide training for campus leaders on veteran education practices; provide opportunities for colleges and universities to compete for funding veteran-focused initiatives; and establish a comprehensive veteran education web-portal.

Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam formed the Governor's Veterans Education Task Force in November 2013, charging the group with identifying hurdles for transitioning veterans, researching best practices to serve student veterans, and making recommendations on improving opportunities for veterans to earn a post-secondary degree or certificate.
