Empowering the Next Greatest Generation:

Considering the Promise of The Post 9/11 G.I. Bill

_____________________________________________________________________________________

Please join the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University as part of the Greenberg Speaker Series, as we present a candid and informative discussion around the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, more commonly referred to as the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill. Cited as one of the most generous benefits to veterans since the end of World War II, we will explore the bill's implementation and its impact on veteran education. The panel will serve to inform and shape the national discussion around this important issue and help develop recommendations and plans of action for policy makers, government officials, higher-education and private industry. Our goal is to ensure this benefit is the one that offers our nation's veterans the highest quality opportunities throughout the course of their post-service life.

Mike Haynie, Executive Director, Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Syracuse University
