Advising Veterans, Military Students and Family Members Interest Group

Active duty service members, National Guard and Reservists, veterans, and their family members are taking college courses in unprecedented numbers. As they enter into our colleges, they bring with them vast experiences, high levels of motivation, and unique perspectives. They may at times however, become overwhelmed or need additional support in order to be successful. Advisors have the opportunity to serve as advocates, mediators, and support for our military and veteran students.
