Working to Support the Military Student in Higher Education
Veteran and active military students can be leaders on campus and in their community if they have the necessary support from their colleges. That support can also be crucial on the pathway to degree attainment for this particular student group.
The following interview is with Holly Moore, the Executive Dean of South Seattle Community College’s Georgetown Campus, and Amy Sherman, the Associate Vice President for Policy and Strategic Alliances at CAEL. Moore will be speaking on success strategies for military students at the National Council for Workforce Education conference. In this interview, Moore and Sherman discuss some of the challenges facing military and veteran students, and successful strategies that help move this demographic of non-traditional learners toward completion.
