Comprehensive Services Tailored for the Transitional Success of Veterans in Higher Education
Lange, Dustin D.; Sears, Susann Heft; Osborne, Nicholas J.
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v29 n3 p277-283 Fall 2016
It is estimated that in the next decade, over two million veterans and dependents will utilize the Post-9/11 GI Bill for postsecondary education. Most colleges already possess the resources that veterans need to successfully transition and persist, though this subpopulation of learners also require services that are tailored to their nontraditional and unique backgrounds. Drawing on case study examples, this article offers a student-centric conceptual model that was developed at a major public university in the Midwest where approximately 400 student veterans are enrolled. The model offers a holistic approach for blending academic, career, family, and disability services for veterans along with recommended practices for student service offices and administrative leaders.
