Principles of Good Practice for Institutions Providing 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. Ten principles offer guidelines for academic instruction providing education programs on military installations. 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 programs evolve as part of the mainstream of adult and higher education. An overview provides a summary of each of the 10 principles. Each principle is then presented in this format: summary, rationale, and listing of subprinciples. The principles cover the following topics: mission statement; education program; personnel; program administration; student services; instructional resources; physical resources; financial resources; student assessment; and program evaluation. Three appendixes contain the following: the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Principles and Criteria, 1995-1997; Statement on Awarding Credit for Extrainstitutional Learning; and Joint Statement on Transfer and Award of Academic Credit.
