Personality Change Among Educationally Disadvantaged Veterans as a Function of Enrollment in a Junior College Developmental Project.
Faubion, Joan H.; Rupiper, O. J.
One of the first educational institutions funded for the establishment of a training program for Viet Nam veterans was Oscar Rose Junior College at Midwest City, Oklahoma. The developmental program began in September 1972, with 112 veterans in the original training phase. The present study was conducted during the spring semester of 1972-73, with second group of high-risk, educationally disadvantaged male veterans (N=105) serving as participants. This study was designed to be useful for those persons in higher education institutions who are presently involved in, or planning to initiate, programs for veterans. Continued and expanded research must be initiated to identify areas of the program which are not contributing to the facilitation of students' attainment of the proposed educational objectives of the various institutions.
