ODU MILITARY PROGRAMS COMMENDED

Old Dominion University recently was commended for its superior military programs by the American Council of Education's Center for Lifelong Learning.

"ODU's commitment to military education is admirable," according to the review. "Further, it has created a panoply of programs which meet several specific needs of both military students and society."

The Washington-based council's recent Military Installation Voluntary Education Review (MIVER) of Hampton Roads naval installations, conducted in October 2003, lauded ODU for:

- creating innovative military education programs that meet the needs of servicemembers;
- its curriculum development and maintenance processes that ensure compliance with professional standards, such as the 100-percent pass rates in the PRAXIS I and II exams;
- its site representative at Norfolk Naval Station, who provides exemplary service to students, the institutions she serves and to higher education for military servicemembers; and
- Perry Library, which provides an exceptional program of information resources and services to Navy students.
