Event Description

Hint: Help Student Veterans Build Upon Prior Learning & Experience

You probably already know that the specific needs of student veterans are different from other students. But do you know how—and why it is so important—to create an academic environment in which student veterans, specifically, can survive and thrive?

Bridge the gap between understanding and implementation: Ramp up your student retention efforts in this information-packed webinar by academic affairs expert Kent Seaver. Find out how your higher education institution can avoid the mistake of undervaluing and dismissing student veterans. Learn instead to create an academic and social environment that supports student veterans’ distinct needs, helps them build on their life experiences, and puts them on a long-term, steady path to academic and workforce success.

After attending, you will walk away with a complete, implementation-ready plan to meet student veterans’ needs at your institution. You will be able to set a true metric for gauging and supporting this particular cohort’s achievement and potential for a full journey, from recruitment to admission all the way to graduation.

Session Highlights

This program will teach you how to:

  • Define student veterans as a distinct cohort
  • Recognize the unique value student veterans bring to your institution
  • Understand the common reasons student veterans fail—or leave before degree completion
  • Use proper metrics to measure and translate student veterans’ prior knowledge/experience into academic (and even workforce) success
  • Advise and steer student veterans in academic- and future-positive directions

  • Directors of Veterans Affairs
  • Coordinators of Student Veterans
  • Veterans Services Coordinators
  • Directors of Academic Advising
  • Veterans Affairs Advisors
