Completing the Mission: Educational Barriers that our returning Veterans face and how Colleges can to be a part of the solution

An interactive, participant driven discussion regarding current barriers that our Student/Veterans encounter and how colleges can be a positive part of the military educational experience with the goal developing an awareness among college administrators, professors and other interested partners.  Our Veterans face a myriad of mental, physical and institutional issues that greatly decrease their chances of having a successful and meaningful educational experience.  Colleges have an opportunity to directly influence our nation’s future by properly addressing the current educational needs of our Student/Veteran population.
