Military Academic Advancement Program

The Military Academic Advancement Program (MAAP), sponsored by Great Plains IDEA, is a military extension partnership funded through U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Defense (DoD). MAAP is part of a premier post-secondary distance education collaboration offering inter-institutional degree programs in Human Sciences. MAAP provides education for careers that fit the professional development of military spouses, veterans, military service members, and civilian professionals serving the military community.

Great Plains IDEA is committed to providing educational programs that advance the health, well-being, and quality of life for military service members, families, and their communities. In order to evaluate our efforts we need some information about our students affiliated with the military, either directly or inderectly.
