Serving those who serve

vetSince today is Veterans Day, I’ll step away from our November topic to thank those who have served in our military and to acknowledge that Minnesota State has a strong history of supporting veterans. Check out more information here.

Our system office staff had a workshop earlier this week where we had an opportunity to hear from a panel of students who are veterans, as well as staff from several of our colleges and universities who support them. I came away with a new appreciation of the challenges that face our students who are veterans, and proud of our commitment to them.

As leaders, we can:

  • Visit the veterans center at your institution and learn more about the students they serve
  • Volunteer to assist at an event sponsored by the veterans center or a student veteran group
  • Be familiar with our policies and procedures for supporting student veterans and promote them at your campus
