Student Veterans on Campus 2014: Providing Support & Ensuring Success
July 18 2013 1:00pm - 2:30pm
Hardeman Student Services Center RM 206
With the current draw down of troops, an influx of student vets will likely arrive on campus for the fall 2013 semester. Is your campus prepared to support these student veterans in pursuit of higher education?
Many barriers and obstacles exist for student vets. Many feel isolated as they struggle to find their place. Others manage mental illness as a result of their experiences overseas. And still others attempt to reintegrate socially and academically into a world that is quite different from where they’ve been. How can we help ensure their success?
Join us for an interactive webinar where we examine current unique trends in student vets services including creating specific veteran areas on campus, establishing ties with the local community, assessment of student veterans, student veterans organizations on campus, campus points of contact for veterans on campus, and more.
We’ll provide the steps to implement similar practices on your own campus.
During this interactive webinar, you will learn about:
- Obstacles that student veterans face on campuses
- Specific strategies to support vets on campus.
- How to implement campus support services for vets.
- Ways to encourage campuses to implement veteran supportive practices.
