Veterans arguably represent one of the most complex and diverse populations on campus. This session will present the current situation and trends surrounding student veterans. You will be presented with examples of proven strategies, practices, and policies that promote successful transition of veterans to postsecondary education, including training developed specifically for campus faculty and staff who interact with them. You will hear from a student veteran who has experienced the challenges of transitioning from military life to college and civilian life and how they were able to overcome those challenge and succeed academically. Finally, you will have the opportunity to ask the presenter and the student pointed questions to better understand how you might be able to improve the learning success and overall outcomes of student veterans on your campus.
