From Camouflage to Classrooms: An Empirical Examination of Veterans at a Regional Midwestern University
Oberweis, Trish; Bradford, Matthew
Journal of Continuing Higher Education, v65 n2 p106-114 2017
Despite a large and growing population of former military service members entering colleges and universities, there is very little empirical work that examines veterans' perspectives on service needs or their perceptions and attitudes about their college experience. Much of what we know of student veterans' views is based on a different generation of veterans, or is derived from extremely small, case study--style samples of the current generation of veterans. The present study invited veterans attending a regional Midwestern university to respond to a survey intended to gauge their perceptions of their unique position on campus and to assess their needs and willingness to use an array of services that the university might provide. Respondents were enthusiastic about all services we imagined they might find useful, and were energetic about helping one another.
