Recruiting Youth in the College Market: Current Practices and Future Policy Options

By M. Rebecca Kilburn; Beth J. Asch | Go to book overview

PREFACE

The armed services prefer to recruit high-quality youth because of their better performance and lower attrition. However, high-quality youth are increasingly interested in attending college. This two-year project explored the potential to make military service more compatible with college plans instead of being perceived as an alternative to attending college. In the first report, Attracting College-Bound Youth into the Military: Toward the Development of New Recruiting Policy Options, by Beth J. Asch, M. Rebecca Kilburn, and Jacob Alex Klerman (RAND, MR-984-OSD, 1999), we documented the trends in college attendance and civilian labor market returns to higher education. That report also reviewed current opportunities to combine military service and higher education, and discussed some new policy options. This second report is an edited volume that contains four chapters, each of which explores a different facet of recruiting college market individuals. The report should be of interest to those concerned with military recruiting as well as to the larger defense manpower research community.

This volume was prepared under the sponsorship of the Office of Accession Policy, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. It was prepared within the Forces and Resources Policy Center of RAND's National Defense Research Institute, a federally funded research and development center sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the unified commands, and the defense agencies.
