On behalf of the Career Center, Husky United Military Veterans (HUMV), and the Veteran’s Center, please join us for a Student Veteran Panel where you will learn how to best support our student veterans.
Thursday, Janurary 24
You will hear from student veterans, Tim Wold, Director of the UW Veteran’s Center, and guest speaker, Robert Stacey, Interim Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. This event is a golden opportunity to hear directly from student veterans, receive information on valuable campus resources, and establish relationships within the student veteran community at UW.
The transition from active deployment to civilian life is one that many soldiers look forward to, but one that often proves to be more challenging than expected. Soldiers may feel that they are returning to an unfamiliar environment or that exposure to the sights and sounds of war have left them a changed person. Even troops who have not been exposed to such traumatic events have typically experienced the cumulative stresses of living in harsh environments, separation from loved ones and deferring other life ambitions. As more and more student veterans join the UW, how can we best support them in and out of the classroom? Join us as we work towards answering this question and other related questions.
Registration is not required. Please help us get the word out by sharing this presentation with your colleagues.
