Collaboration for Military Transition Students from Combat to College: It Takes a Community
Burnett, Sandra E.; Segoria, John
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v22 n1 p53-58 2009
It will be essential for postsecondary institutions to come up with new ways of providing service delivery to returning veterans with disabilities who will bring with them an entirely new perspective on what it means to have a disability. This emerging disability group will bring with them life experiences that are very unique and vastly different than what has previously been the norm. Postsecondary institutions will be challenged by incoming veterans with disabilities with expectations largely shaped by the military culture. In order to address the unique educational needs of veterans with disabilities, multiple levels of collaboration will be necessary. This article will provide information on current collaborative approaches being successfully utilized by postsecondary institutions involving Disabled Student Services (DSS) and Veterans Service Officer (VSO), campus programs, and community agencies supporting military veterans.
