“Military 101 Workshop”

Monday, February 26, 2018
3:00-4:30 PM, McKenna 112-114

Student veterans represent a growing population on campus and are diverse in terms of demographic characteristics and service backgrounds. These students add great value because they bring global experiences, leadership skills, discipline, and focus to the classroom. However, most veterans are entering college for the first time or returning after many years away. The purpose of this workshop is to educate faculty, staff, and students about the unique strengths and challenges facing student veterans and military service members.
