We had a wonderful discussion today during our hour long webinar highlighting The Telling Project (http://thetellingproject.org/). There were so many questions we were unfortunately unable to get to all of them so are creating a space here on the Toolkit to continue the discussion.

Given the labor market needs, our knowledge economy, and the benefits of attaining a post-graduate education, career services are in an ideal position to encourage and support graduate school attendance among student veterans. A graduate degree can be beneficial for a number of reasons: improve career prospects, necessary in many professional fields, earn higher salaries, and decrease one’s chances of being unemployed. Career centers staff typically helps students identify suitable graduate programs, prepare for the application process, and develop a timeline, as well as how veterans can finance their graduate education.
A dedicated veterans office or space can often serve as a one-stop-shop for much-needed services. Many colleges and universities have dedicated spaces and a point of contact for veterans to learn about financial aid benefits, on-campus resources, student veterans’ organization, and research/internship opportunities. Having a dedicated space demonstrates to veterans that the institution acknowledges their veteran statuses and can create a welcoming and supportive campus culture in support of their college access and completion.
