Grand Valley recently became a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity College Consortium, a national organization that provides education opportunities to service members.
Founded in 1972, the SOC Consortium includes 1,900 institutions worldwide and provides opportunities for service members, veterans and their families who move from place to place and have trouble completing degrees. The SOC Consortium partners include 15 higher education associations, the Department of Defense and the active and reserve components of the Military Services.
Steven Lipnicki, assistant dean of Students, said being a member of the group will allow the university to continue to help the more than 450 service members and veterans who are Grand Valley students. “Being a member of this group demonstrates the university’s commitment to assisting service members and their family members,” he said.
