Five Ways to Create Success for Veterans in Higher Education

Five Ways to Create Success for Veterans in Higher Education | SCUP Links | Scoop.it

"In the first installment of this two-part series, Nathan Sable argued that the biggest challenge veteran students face is regaining their sense of service and community. From there, he outlined the first two of his five strategies for how higher education institutions can help support this effort; through hiring a knowledgeable veteran coordinator and creating a sense of service. In this article, he explains his remaining three strategies for creating success for veteran students in higher education."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Worth a look if you are planning or advising someone planning improvements in veterans' programs.


Also, a very nice publication to monitor as lifelong learning picks up in importance.

Trend— Give more undergrads the attention 'lavished on students at elite institutions'

Six years ago, CUNY decided to confront the high dropout rate at its community colleges with the ASAP initiative. The results are stunning: 56 percent of the first two cohorts of more than 1,500 students have graduated, compared with just 23 percent of a comparable group that didn’t have the same experience. What’s more, most of those graduates are currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree.

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Over the past month, CUNY’s Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) has garnered hosannas in the media for its package of comprehensive financial resources, student support systems and impressive graduation rates. The social policy leader MDRC is conducting a multiyear random-assignment study of ASAP and, in a just-released report, describes it as “unparalleled in large-scale experimental evaluations of programs in higher education to date.”
