Student Veteran Resources Quick Reference Guide

Veterans Affairs’  Campus Toolkit provides faculty, staff, and administrators resources to support student Veterans. The aim of the toolkit is to help campuses welcome these student veterans by recognizing who they are, and understanding their unique experiences, adjustments, and needs. Faculty resources include how to make your syllabus Veteran friendly, and how to understand and help with specific classroom behaviors.  The toolkit provides resource links for managing distress, getting help, understanding PTSD, and understanding benefits.
