As a kid who went to college on the GI Bill and later a college professor who deals with veterans as students today, I’m glad to see specific attention to issues with how vets in college are treated by college administrators and faculty. I’ve heard of situations where professors did not accept national guard duty as an excused absence and other nonsense. I suppose one reason for shortcomings in how colleges deal with veterans is that there are few of them among faculty and college administration. So, I am pleased to see a national student affairs administrators’ association holding an annual symposium on improving support for students with military experience. Link to the call.
Veterans conference call for papers
While I have not attended this conference before, I want to share that the Veterans in Society is holding its fourth conference next year and they just released their call for papers. I hope to be there!
