About Next Mission

You served your country. Your Next Mission: Succeed in Life.

Leverage your military experience for success in civilian life through online courses offering college credits.

What is the Next Mission project?

Over two million American veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now home. They return to their families, the work force, and their communities with core values of honor, courage, duty, country, leadership, loyalty and teamwork. Upon leaving the military, our veterans’ next mission is to reflect on their experiences and draw upon their numerous strengths as they reintegrate into civilian life. Key to Next Mission is our belief that these veterans will enrich and contribute most meaningfully in their personal lives, their careers, and as members of society.

Next Mission is a series of innovative, strategic and interactive online college level courses developed and taught by faculty members of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). These online courses, available to any active duty service member or veteran around the world, allow current or former members of our armed forces to earn college credits or military promotion points. Our first course is now available online, and we are in the process of developing others.
