Project:

Development of a Veteran-Specific College Orientation Program to Assist with Transition Issues

Institutions of higher education strive to serve all populations of students on campus. Military veteran students are a unique population of students with needs that differ from any other student population. As a result of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan there has been an increase in the number of student veterans. Institutions must be willing to make changes and create programs in order to better serve this population of students. This project uses Schlossberg's transition theory as a framework for the development of a veteran-specific orientation program. The orientation program discussed is transferrable to institutions of any size. It is designed to address the needs of veteran students as they begin their journey through higher education.
