If you interact with student Veterans in or out of the classroom, you can support their mental health. Understanding the challenges and opportunities that student Veterans face can improve communication and help build trust and understanding, enhancing their academic experience. In addition, connecting student Veterans to the resources they need can make a real difference in their well-being.

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.
