History

The consortium was founded by Central Michigan University in 2010. CMU also created and hosts the website. In 2011 the Presidents Council State Universities of Michigan and the Michigan Community College Association began work to formalize the consortium. In early 2012, Michigan’s 28 community colleges joined with other key partners to create a statewide network to improve the support and services to our active military and veterans populations.

The primary goal of the Consortium of Michigan Veteran Educators is to increase the number of service members, and their families, who take advantage of the educational benefits that are available to them such as the G.I. Bill. As part of this critical goal, the members of the consortium are also focused on ensuring veterans that enroll in Michigan’s public postsecondary institutions receive the support they need to successfully complete a credential that will lead to gainful employment and productive lives. A secondary goal of the Consortium is to serve as a convener of college and university staff to provide for professional development opportunities and sharing of best practices to better support the student veteran population.
