Fighting to hold For-Profit Universities accountable for abusive and exploitive behavior toward student veterans.Increasingly, veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been targeted by recruiters for for-profit universities. Using aggressive and highly-questionable recruiting practices, and deceptive marketing materials, for-profit universities have succeeded in claiming a substantial share of federal spending on GI Bill benefits. But because these schools have much higher drop-out rates than non-profit universities, and because their course and degree offerings are often of questionable value even to graduates, many veterans have exhausted their one-time-only GI Bill benefits, and even taken on debt, often without gaining any meaningful enhancement of their skills or opportunities.
