Developing a Student Veterans Center: The Confluence of Academic and Military Cultures
Francis, Lynette Cook; Kraus, Amanda
About Campus, v17 n4 p11-14 Sep-Oct 2012
While student veterans share characteristics with other student populations, they also bring to campuses a host of unique gifts and challenges whose impact can be profound, not only on the vets themselves but also on the institution and the individuals who work with them. Therefore, college professionals should proceed with humility and caution as they develop programming for veterans. In this article, the authors describe the benefits and challenges of working together with student veterans to develop a program that contributes to their successful transition to higher education.
