The Department of Education’s Veteran Employment Program Office (VEPO) is committed to increasing the employment of nondisabled and disabled veterans throughout the Department. In addition, the Department continues to forge partnerships with other federal government agencies, veterans service organizations, colleges, universities, and other institutions that have veterans as members, students, or affiliates. See below for more about how ED is reaching out to support employment opportunities for our nation's veterans.
VEPO’s mission is to promote meaningful employment opportunities for veterans and encourage their integration into the ED workforce nationwide through effective training, career development, and promotional opportunities.
VEPO is committed to attract and hire veterans who have served and sacrificed in defense of our country, as well as trained to perform needed services in mission-critical and mission-support occupations.

On Nov. 9, 2009, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13518, Employment of Veterans in the Federal Government, which established the Veterans Employment Initiative. The Department of Education’s Veteran Employment Program Office and this Web page are a direct result of the executive order. We hope you continue to visit us in the coming weeks and months as we expand this page to include new features, updates on the progress of the initiative, and additional resources.
