Abstract:

Know yourself and seek improvement, one of the Marine Corps leadership principles, encourages young Marines to take advantage of the various opportunities to grow and develop personally and professionally. As leaders of Marines, officers and Staff Noncommissioned Officers SNCOs have the responsibility of fostering an environment conducive to learning, as well as providing the means for young Marines to advance themselves on and off the battlefield. One avenue in which junior Marines can further themselves is through the pursuit of a post-secondary education. Post-secondary education offers the opportunity for junior Marines to learn new skills, build upon their experiences and expand their knowledge in other areas. Marines who pursue college degrees improve themselves individually, as well as demonstrate their ability to have a positive impact on the Marine Corps. As leaders of Marines, officers and SNCOs have the inherent responsibility to promote, encourage, and facilitate post-secondary education amongst the junior ranks to strengthen the Marine Corps and retain the Corps quality Marines.
