What is your campus doing for veterans?

The American Association of State Colleges and Universities recently completed a 2012 re-do of a survey first conducted in 2008. They survey found an increase in veteran support services:

Responding institutions have improved in meeting the needs of veteran and military students in a number of ways, including:

  • Seventy-one percent of institutions that offer programs and services for military and veteran students have a dedicated office serving those students, up from 49 percent in 2009.
  • Eighty-four percent of the institutions that offer services for veteran and military students provide counseling to assist with post-traumatic stress disorder, compared to 16 percent in 2009.
  • Fifty-five percent of the institutions that offer services for veteran and military students have staff trained to assist with physical disabilities, up from 33 percent in 2009, and 36 percent have staff trained to assist specifically with brain injuries, up from 23 percent in 2009.
  • Forty-seven percent offer a veteran student lounge or gathering place, up from 12 percent in 2009.

“Campuses across the country have taken major steps forward over the past three years to develop more specialized programs and services to serve veteran and military students,” said ACE President Molly Corbett Broad. “This report shows that while challenges remain, higher education is working hard to meet the needs of this important and growing population of students.”
