Presenters: David Vacchi
Student Veterans are a growing demographic on many campuses and approaching these students from an informed perspective may make all the difference in their success. Student affairs professionals can lead the way to making our campuses more veteran friendly. This Webinar will help participants understand the basics of what military service is like, to how veterans interact both in and outside the classroom. We will also address how veterans undertake many simultaneous transitions, in addition to joining a campus community. Understanding the array of potential transitions can help student affairs professionals know which can be managed on campus and which require outside help.
