"While the Marine Corps University Foundation helps prepare Marines for their world missions, their education and training is rooted in a belief that learning is richer and more lasting when its students use the real world to apply, test and evaluate the theories they learn in the classroom. Marine Corps University provides that unique learning environment and their real world experiences will help with the training of our future warriors."
