The Executive Order is designed to enhance resources and support available to Service members and Veteran's using military tuition assistance, veteran's benefits and other federal benefits to pursue a higher education. Additionally, the Executive Order (EO) encourages agencies to expand oversight activities to better address student concerns, and ensure that students receive quality educational opportunities in exchange for their Federal education benefits. The EO also challenges agencies to learn more about the students they serve through outcome measures that can inform future initiatives.
