The Coordinating Commission participates in a 13-state initiative to help military service members, veterans, and their families overcome barriers to earning postsecondary credentials and entering the workforce.
The Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) was awarded a grant from Lumina Foundation to establish the Multi-State Collaborative on Military Credit (MCMC), which aims to, among other things, identify effective policies and best practices that can be shared among participating states.
Volunteers from state agencies, university systems, college campuses, and other organizations work together as part of the initiative. The Coordinating Commission has served as the MCMC facilitator in Nebraska. Kathleen Fimple, the Commission’s Academic Programs Officer, is Nebraska’s representative on the MCMC steering committee.
The Midwestern Higher Education Compact is a nonprofit regional organization assisting Midwestern states in advancing higher education through interstate cooperation and resource sharing.
Lumina Foundation is an independent, private foundation committed to increasing the proportion of Americans with high-quality degrees, certificates and other credentials to 60 percent by 2025.
