Serving Those Who've Served: Enrolling & Graduating Veterans

Veterans are significantly underrepresented at the colleges and universities with the highest graduation rates, despite being well-qualified to attend. The benefit of a bachelor’s degree for the student is clear, but for these institutions, enrolling veterans also provides numerous benefits, including the opportunity to increase diversity, expand the enrollment pipeline, and receive federal financial assistance from GI Bill funds. This session will highlight best practices, from both the administrator and student perspective, for enrolling, supporting, and graduating student veterans.
