Overview:
A Veterans Resource Center is an essential component of any college campus. Often, transitioning to academic life can prove difficult and overwhelming for veterans. In order to help them persist and succeed in the college experience, institutions must create a welcoming center of support and services.

This webinar will review the history and impact of the new GI Bill and specifically, how it affected student enrollment during Fall 2008, Fall 2009, and Spring 2010 at both community colleges and universities. Participants will learn what their individual campuses need to keep the veteran demographic, a group that has guaranteed federal dollars. The ins and outs of a successful Veterans Resource Center will also be discussed: space, equipment, community buy-in and support, personnel, and funding.

Participants will walk step-by-step through a series of planning, design, and implementation stages that, if followed, can lead to the creation of a quality Veterans Resource Center. They will also learn how to evaluate the effectiveness of the center and move forward with maintenance and growth activities.
