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.

Some dependents of veterans would also be eligible for the resident rates. Universities that do not offer the reduced rates could become ineligible to receive federal veteran-education dollars."

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

But ... "Some public colleges say the new law will force institutions to shoulder an expensive burden. In June the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities implored Congress to let public institutions set their own prices, calling the tuition measure 'essentially an allocation of state, not federal, resources.'"
