  • An education mission for our veterans

    Real Clear Education - 11/11/2014

    When Adam Beatty sat down to write his college application essay, he faced a different set of anxieties than most prospective students. For one thing, Adam was writing from a desert in Iraq, where he was serving his second tour of duty as a Marine infantryman. For another, he was about to go on patrol, and had heard that a suicide bomber was looking to target U.S. troops.

    Adam successfully completed his patrol, his tour — and his essay — before enrolling at Northeastern University, the institution I lead. But, he says, although many of his fellow veterans aspire to higher education, they often lack the support they need to navigate the college process, make it through, and make the most of the talents they bring by virtue of their military experience.
