Student Service Members/Veterans in Higher Education: A Systematic Review
Barry, Adam E.; Whiteman, Shawn D.; MacDermid Wadsworth, Shelley
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v51 n1 p30-42 Feb 2014
We systematically reviewed the data-based peer-reviewed research examining student service members/veterans (SSM/V) in higher education. Compared to civilian peers, SSM/V exhibit disproportionately higher rates of health risk behaviors and psychological symptoms, and personal and educational adjustment difficulties (i.e., inability to connect with peers and faculty on campus). Combat-related trauma is a contributing factor to these differences. The current evidence-base is scant, lacking nationally representative and/or longitudinal data to inform policies and programs for SSM/V.
