Military Child Education Coalition and Operation Educate the Educators

McKendree University is located near Scott Air Force Base and many of our students and faculty members have ties to the military. Because of these close ties, McKendree University has joined Operation Educate the Educators a nationwide Joining forces initiative which follows the guiding principles from the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and the Military Child Education Coalition. The Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) is a non-profit, world-wide organization focused on ensuring quality educational opportunities for all military children affected by mobility, family separation and transition.
