BERKELEY COLLEGE OFFICE OF MILITARY AND VETERANS AFFAIRS ASSISTANT VICE PRESIDENT NAMED TO NAVPA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The National Association of Veterans’ Program Administrators (NAVPA) recently announced the election of Ed Dennis, Assistant Vice President, Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs (OMVA), to its Board of Directors. Dennis will serve as a board member for Region I in New York beginning in 2021. Founded in 1975, NAVPA comprises representatives of colleges and universities who ensure student-veterans are provided the best service and access to G.I. Bill benefits.
Dennis served in the U.S. Army for more than 21 years in positions of increasing responsibility. In retirement from the service, he has volunteered with Team RWB, The Travis Manion Foundation, Team Rubicon, ETS Sponsorship Program, IAVA, and The Wounded Warrior Project.
“I am proud to serve my community in this way,” Dennis said. “NAVPA is an important organization because they are focused on G.I. Bill recipient programs nationally. Our goal is to serve veterans and military-family students best through training and advocacy with colleges, the Veterans Administration, and Senate and House Veteran Affairs Committees. NAVPA actively monitors student issues and presents them to lawmakers and the Department of Veterans Affairs on matters that relate to veterans’ educational benefits. I myself was able to pursue higher education through the G.I. Bill, and recognize that it is possibly the most important benefit earned through military service.”
U.S. News & World Report has recognized Berkeley College on its list of Best Online Programs for Veterans from 2014 to 2020.
