Opportunity to learn strategies that may assist our Student Veterans

On Tuesday, June 11, the Veteran’s Benefits Office, along with Student Records, is hosting a webinar presented by HigherEd Hero of Pennsylvania.  Entitled, “Veterans on Campus: Support & Service Strategies to Retain Student Vets,” the webinar seeks to offer and discuss strategies that “provide returning student veterans with campus-wide support and services” in an effort to further the student veteran experience and ensure their success.

With this goal in mind, the presenter—Dr. Jose E. Coll, Director of Veteran Student Services at Saint Leo University—will examine and discuss techniques relating to

  • Understanding the military student culture
  • Successful veteran reintegration into college life
  • Veteran-centered academic advising
  • Retention and academic success for vets
  • Meeting academic and social challenges of vets in the classroom

The webinar takes place from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM on Tuesday, June 11.  Light snacks will be provided.  For more information, please contact Veterans Coordinator, Janice Holton at jholton@grcc.edu.  If interested in attending the webinar, please contact Matthew Novakoski (mnovakoski@grcc.edu) by Friday, June 7.
