Military Installation Voluntary Education Review (MIVER). Final Report. Fiscal Years 1991-1993.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC. Center for Adult Learning and Educational Credentials.
The Military Installation Voluntary Education Review (MIVER) Project has two purposes: to assess the quality of selected on-base voluntary education programs and to assist in the improvement of such education through appropriate recommendations to institutions, installations, and the military services. MIVER site team members assessed the quality of the voluntary education at 24 installations. They used the "MIVER Model" to review the installation needs assessment, education planning, and implementation process as well as facilities, resources, leadership, climate for learning, and communications that foster effective working relationships among both installation and institutional education personnel. One of the reasons that the MIVER process works so well is the design of the site team assignment structure. Team members have multiple assignments. Horizontal, vertical, and functional involvement provide opportunities for most of them to have a minimum of three assignments. The MIVER staff and governing board have pulled together key "principles" in 12 areas for installations and 10 areas for institutions using the common threads of excellence and concerns in military education observed by MIVER teams among the services over the past 3 years. (Two summaries outline installation and institution commendations and concerns that are examples of MIVER team findings. Names and addresses of contacts are provided.) (YLB)
