Faculty and Staff Resources


Thank you to CMU's leadership for supporting military and

veteran students.  100% of the President and Provost's

office completed Veterans on Campus training.

As you know, we are seeing and will continue to see an increase in the number of student veterans attending our institution. As members of our campus community, I am certain we are all committed to understanding the value student veterans bring to our campus, and the unique challenges they face in their transition to academic life. The 30-minute interactive online simulation will help you better understand the student veteran community and assist them with veteran-related challenges. ​Please click on the image below to begin training.​​  If you're new to the training, you will need to create an account and use:

For those that have any direct contact with students we are hoping for 100% participation.​​  We sincerely appreciate your willingness to participate in this important initiative and also share this with your co-workers. You will be automatically enrolled in the Blackboard course Veterans on Campus to have full access to additional resources once you complete the training. Please let us know should you have questions.  Additional information about increasing student veteran retention is available here:HiEd_WP_032117_StudentRetentionWP.pdf.

An additional resource is to read Alison Lighthall's article from the NEA Higher Education Journal, Ten Things You ShouldKnow About Today’sStudent Veteran.
