The Midwestern Higher Education Compact will host Mitch Seal, Senior Academic Advisor for the Comprehensive Learner Record Taskforce and Boris Kun, Credentialing & SkillBridge Programs Manager, from the Department of Defense (DoD), who will share information on MilGears (MG). MG is a new DoD-wide learner record resource that is open to the public. MG matches individual education and experiences to funded credentials, degree completion, and employment opportunities. Through direct review of authentic records, a Military Ready School can match programs and/or credentials to the most qualified and prepared military, veteran, and spouse students through MG. This provides access to the right students to the right school at the right time.
