Promising Best Practices Research Results

As the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq come to a close many who have served in the U.S. military will begin their transition home and readjustment to civilian life. For many, this will mean enrolling in a higher education institution, using their earned education benefits.

The pending influx of student veterans means that higher education must become aware of the special needs of this population, become more veteran friendly, and develop competency in veteran culture.

The aim of this research is to compile a list of national higher education promising best practices, to assist institutions to better understand how they can effectively serve their student veterans.
