The 8 Keys to Veterans’ Success

This month, Learning Alliance’s Director of Operations Fred Arnold wrote the  U.S. Department of Education in regard to LAC’s Dedication to the 8 Keys to Veterans’ Success. With so many of our students being veterans themselves, it is important that we highlight the Institutions backing of those who have served. With all that in mind, these are the 8 Keys to Veterans’ Success.

“Learning Alliance dedicates itself to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our institution. Providing high skill, high wage job potential for Veterans and their families is a true aspect of that mission and vision. When our colors show up, it means jobs. When our name is mentioned, it means futures. We are proud to accept the 8 Keys to Veterans Success and all that comes with it.”

Fred Arnold, Director of Operations, Learning Alliance Corporation
