From Combat to Campus: Voices of Student-Veterans
DiRamio, David; Ackerman, Robert; Mitchell, Regina L.
NASPA Journal, v45 n1 p73-102 2008
What needs do veterans bring to campus? Little is known about this emerging student population. The researchers interviewed 25 students who served in the current Iraq and Afghan conflicts. This was a multicampus study, with the sample derived from three geographically diverse universities representing northern, southern, and western regions of the United States. Using a model of adult transition by Schlossberg as a guiding theory, a grounded theory epistemology was used to generate a conceptual framework for understanding students who are making the transition from wartime service to college. Findings and implications will help institutions organize a holistic approach for assisting veterans and improving their chances for success. (Contains 2 figures.)
