Partnerships with Institutions of Higher Education

Bill Kobren

Kudos to our US Space Force colleagues on the recent launch of their University Partnership Program (UPP). The potential benefits to their workforce, their mission, and their partners are wide and varied, including “…to identify, develop and retain a diverse STEM-capable workforce”.

For those who may not be aware, a reminder that DAU also offers a similar Strategic Partnership Program, teaming with nearly fifty private-sector universities and colleges across the United States. Participating institutions offer defense acquisition workforce members higher education credit for completing DAU courses-- saving millions of dollars yearly for our workforce. For detailed information and a sortable tool that searches by degree type, functional career field, and educational institution, click on the Get College Credit for Defense Acquisition University Courses link on our DAU Partnerships program website.
