In keeping with its efforts to support the educational needs of military personnel, Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) is partnering with the U.S. Air Force to help active-duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves personnel further their education through the General Education Mobile (GEM) program and the Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC). Both programs provide active duty, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves personnel serving anywhere in the world an opportunity to further their education online while serving. With 300,000 active, guard and reserve enlisted personnel, the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is the world’s largest community college system.

IWU is one of only 87 universities in the country approved for the GEM program, and it is the only GEM-approved university in Indiana. IWU is also one of just 64 approved AU-ABC schools in the country and one of two in Indiana.

“We are proud to be one of the few colleges accepted to participate in these Air Force programs,” said K.C. Haight, director of military and veteran recruitment at IWU-National & Global. “Both the GEM and the AU-ABC programs allow enlisted members to maximize their military experience while enrolling in an accelerated program that allows them to achieve their educational goals.”
