An online complaint system for service members, veterans, spouses, and other family members enrolled in higher ed has gone live.

The Executive Order contains the following disability-related directive in Section 2 – (h): (h) designate a point of contact for academic and financial advising (including access to disability counseling) to assist service member and veteran students and their families with the successful completion of their studies and with their job searches.
