Subject: Executive Order 13607 - Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Veterans, Spouses, and Other Family Members

Executive Order 13607 (EO 13607), which is attached below, is designed to enhance resources and support available to service members and veterans using military tuition assistance, veteran's benefits and other Federal benefits to pursue a higher education. Additionally, EO 13607 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. EO 13607 also challenges agencies to learn more about the students they serve through outcome measures that can inform future initiatives.

The Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs, and Education, in conjunction with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission, conducted three webinars to discuss Executive Order 13607. To watch to the webinar please go to: Executive Order 13607.
