I wanted to highlight the perspective of non-traditional students in Higher Education in the US.
I have included a TEDx talk from Christopher Webb - a veteran and ex-student at UNCAsheville on Student Veteran Awareness
He highlights some of the experiences of being a veteran attending college including the problem of class discussions, choosing a major when people have preconceptions about veterans etc.
The moral obligation to know our veterans by Mike Haynie at the University of Nevada.
He details that most people in the United States do not understand the challenges facing our veterans.
My question is not only how can we ensure Higher Education meets the needs of veterans but also what can Higher Education learn from veterans?
This article mentions some of the skills you learn in the military.
