Vice Chancellor Haynie Appointed to Veterans Advisory Committee on Education
Earlier this month, J. Michael Haynie, Ph.D., vice chancellor for strategic initiatives and innovation and executive director of the D’Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families, was appointed by United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough to serve on the Veterans Advisory Committee on Education.
“The Veterans Advisory Committee on Education is a significant cornerstone in ensuring that the lives of our veterans and military families have access to meaningful and affordable post-service educational opportunities,” Haynie said. “I am truly grateful and humbled by this appointment to this exceptional committee.”
Haynie founded the D’Aniello Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) in 2011, creating the nation’s first interdisciplinary institute created to inform and advance the policy, economic, and wellness concerns of America’s veterans and military-connected families. Today, the institute is widely recognized as the nation’s leading academic voice related to issues impacting veterans and military-connected families.
As a member of the committee, Haynie will collaborate with committee members to provide advice to the Secretary on training and education programs for all current and former members of the United States Military. Haynie will be attending his first public meeting with the committee on May 24-26, 2022.
