Paper-Based Registration Form
The vast majority of incoming college students are between 18 and 20 years old. Because of this, most campuses have created an orientation that is geared toward this demographic. Student veterans have been through a much more comprehensive orientation than a campus can ever provide. These students need and deserve an orientation that takes into account their experiences, sacrifices, and unique needs.
Join us to learn how to modify your current orientation to fit your student veterans’ needs. Dr. John Schupp will describe the military’s orientation and compare that with common campus orientations. Learn what you should provide, who should present, and which community members to invite. Discussion will also include strategies for showing your student veterans that they are appreciated, like priority course registration (they have earned it).
Participants will also learn how to determine the number of Post 9-11 veterans in their county and region and discuss the impact that they can have on campus and in the community.
Dr. John Schupp, founded the SERV Program, a two-semester program at Cleveland State University designed just for veterans in order to increase the freshmen retention graduation rates. Under his direction, the program helps veterans apply for GI Bill benefits and offers veterans-only classes that help ease the transition back into the classroom for many veterans that have been absent from the academic setting for years. He works with veterans to navigate VA issues and offers a veteran-to-veteran mentoring program. The Sunday New York Times, National Public Radio, all the Armed Forces media, and The Chronicle of Higher Education have taken an interest in SERV. Dr. Schupp loses no chance to spread the word at conferences and conventions around the country, as he continues to remind us of our responsibility to those that have served. In honor of his exemplary work with veterans, Dr. Schupp’s name was placed on a plaque in the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
