Education Management Corporation (EDMC) Welcomes Lieutenant General John (Jack) W. Bergman, A Strong Advocate For Student-Veterans' Educational Opportunities And Academic Success

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Education Management Corporation (NASDAQ: EDMC), one of the largest providers of post-secondary education in North America, welcomes Lieutenant General John (Jack) W. Bergman, United States Marine Corps (retired), a lifelong advocate for ensuring that our nation's military members are provided with worthwhile, broadbased educational benefits in their quest to transition from service to civilian life.

An authority on organizational leadership, General Bergman will serve in a key leadership role to our 107 schools nationwide in an effort to assist enlisted military and veteran students with meeting their educational goals in order to start the next phase of their careers.

"Veterans expect and respect straight forward, imaginative, quality education and training," General Bergman said. "EDMC will continue to meet and exceed veterans' expectations and I am very excited to play a role in that effort."

General Bergman will liaise with government leaders on ensuring that student-veterans have every opportunity to make a smooth transition to civilian life. General Bergman has testified before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Veterans' Affairs, saying that student-veterans need "education opportunities and benefits that are basically equitable and easy to utilize."  

"We are pleased with General Bergman's recognition of the importance of our programs' flexibility and convenience in ensuring that we are delivering a quality education that meets the needs of our country's men and women in uniform," said Tony Guida, Senior Vice President, EDMC External Affairs. 

Recently, General Bergman toured The Illinois Institute of ArtChicago (ILIA — Chicago), met with student-veterans and had lunch at Backstage Bistro, the restaurant run by ILIA — Chicago culinary students. The General also paid a visit to The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, meeting with student-veterans.
