Veterans Group Banishes 26 For-Profits

This month, the Student Veterans of America revoked the membership of 26 chapters after officials found out that the institutions in question had listed administrators as primary contacts rather than students and had used institutions web sites and recruitment pages as chapter sites.

All 26 institutions are from the for-profit industry and the group’s Executive Director, Michael Dakduk, told the Chronicle of Higher Education that he was worried the offending for-profits were using the association’s brand to legitimize program offerings.

Dakduk was adamant that the SVA was not “picking on” for-profit colleges, but were simply concerned by the standards those universities kept when handling student associations.

“We don’t know that for-profits have the same standards of handling student organizations that traditional brick-and-mortar institutions have,” he said.
