THE GOOD NEWS: JPMorgan Invests $1 Million in Higher Ed for Veterans
Monday, Feb. 3, 2014
JPMorgan Chase announced this past week that it will invest $1 million to fund higher education programs for U.S. military veterans, in partnership with Florida State College, University of South Florida, the University of Texas, and San Diego State University. The funds will be used to build programs for student veterans, aimed at increasing retention and graduation rates.
The investment continues JPMorgan’s work with veterans, including the creation of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University, dedicated to the social, economic, education, and policy issues veterans and their families face. In addition, JPMorgan has hired over 6,300 veterans itself, and leads a campaign to encourage other companies to do the same.
We are impressed by JPMorgan’s efforts to assist veterans, and hope that more corporations follow its lead. What's your take on its new programs?
