Serving The Needs Of Student Veterans

veteran_studies.jpg

  In 2009, there were approximately 500,000 veterans receiving education benefits and attending US colleges. By 2013, more than one-million student veterans were using their GI benefits to pursue advanced educational opportunities, and that number is estimated to increase by 20% in the next few years. 

Joining us to look at today’s veterans on campus are Dave Merriss, assistant director at the Northern Kentucky University Veterans Resource Station; Terence Harrison, University of Cincinnati Veterans Programs & Services manager; and, Christopher Klug,  assistant director for Xavier University’s Center for Veterans Affairs.
