Principles of Good Practice for Voluntary Education Programs on Military Installations. Military Installation Voluntary Education Review (MIVER).
American Council on Education, Washington, DC. Center for Adult Learning and Educational Credentials.
This volume was developed with a concern for maintaining both quality and access to education for military servicemembers participating in voluntary education programs. The principles have the following objectives: to define the parameters of excellence; to dispel misunderstandings about the purpose, legitimacy, and worth of voluntary education programs conducted on U.S. military installations; to stimulate dialogue on how to strengthen and improve the quality of these programs and services; and to help the programs evolve as part of the mainstream of adult and higher education. An overview provides a summary of each of the 12 principles. Each principle is then presented in this format: summary, rationale, and listing of subprinciples. The principles cover the following topics: mission statement; command support; personnel; needs assessment; education program planning; education program acquisition; program administration; student services; instructional resources; physical resources; financial resources; and student assessment and program evaluation.
