Toolkit for Veteran Friendly Institutions

From the American Council on Education

American Council on Education (ACE), this online resource is designed to help institutions of higher education build effective programs for veteran students and share information. It highlights a variety of best practices including veterans-specific orientation offerings, on-campus veterans service centers, prospective student outreach efforts, faculty training, and counseling and psychological services for veteran students. It also includes video clips, profiles of student veterans programs across the U.S., and a searchable database of tools and resources.

Many colleges and universities have taken significant steps toward providing supportive programs and services for returning veterans.  But what does it mean when a school is labeled “veteran friendly?”  After all, the term “veteran friendly” has no established criteria and can be used as a recruiting tactic with little accountability.
