Veteran Friendly Campus Set
Catch up on all three shows in the series
The three-part series on Veteran Friendly Campuses has concluded. Thank you Dr. David Vacchi for being my co-host for this outstanding series of conversations. If you missed all or a portion of the series, you can catch up on the replay now.
Veterans have a proven track record for being self motivated and completing their studies, and add a diversity of lived experiences to campuses. Having a campus that is considered Veteran Ready goes beyond a yellow-ribbon or an asterisk in a view book. There are essential components of what makes a campus truly Veteran Ready and achieving such benefits the entire campus. Dr. David Vacchi from the Naval War College in Newport, RI will be my co-host for this three part series on Veteran Friendly Campuses this Month on Fireside and replaying on Apple Podcasts, Spotify Podcasts and iHeart Radio Podcasts.
