Title: Serving Those Who Served: Cultivating Synergy to Strengthen Advising and Support Services for Veteran Students
Lead Presenter: Arline Leon-Guerrero
Date: On-Demand
Room: On Demand
Abstract: As the enrollment of veteran students is on the rise, a small Pacific university re-examined its landscape of existing support structures and retention efforts to focus on improving veteran services to accommodate the distinct and unique needs of this growing student population. Oftentimes, veteran students express confusion and frustration with university policies and processes, difficulties navigating through campus resources, and feelings of alienation, all which can lead to disconnect and student attrition. The purpose of this presentation is to share, through discussion, exchange of ideas, and reflection, the steps advisors can take to strengthen advising practices and resources for veterans by cultivating synergy across campus, thus creating a positive learning environment and sense of belonging. No student is an island.
