Academic Advisor Forum — Boots to Books: Advising and Teaching Veterans

Dates and Times: Friday, October 18 or Tuesday, October 29, 9 a.m. to 12 noon
Location: Plaster Student Union Ballroom East
Facilitator: Jenifer Kautzman and Audri Killian

The Department of Veterans Affairs indicates that enrollment of veterans in college has increased 16-fold and well over 500,000 veterans have traded in their uniforms for text books. With the development of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, and the wars in Iraq/Afghanistan coming to an end, colleges across the state see dramatic increases of veterans attending classes. At Missouri State University we’ve developed the Veteran Student Services office to meet the growing demands of this exceptional group of students. In this session, learn about unique needs of student-veterans, discuss ways we can engage, encourage and empower our student-veterans and hear from current student-veterans about their personal transition and experiences. Contact Kathy Davis at ext. 65258 with questions.

Space is limited and registration is required through the Academic Advising website.

Co-sponsored by Veteran Student Services
