Title:Easing the transition from combat to classroom: Preserving America's investment in higher education for military veterans through institutional assessment
Source:http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2012/04/...
Date:2012
Organization:Center for American Progress
Short Description:As part of a national effort to develop workable strategies to address the needs and concerns of student veterans, this report presents the Environmental Evaluation for Veterans Index, or EEVI, which will provide higher education institutions and policymakers with the tools needed to assess campus environments for veterans.
Annotation:As the nation strives to reach President Barack Obama’s goal of becoming the world’s leader in terms of college completion by 2020, the needs and concerns of a growing veteran population must be addressed. Developing strategies that increase the likelihood of veterans completing their studies and earning their degrees will certainly contribute positively to this goal and simultaneously promote national competitiveness as well as appropriately compensating veterans for their service. As part of this effort to develop workable strategies, this report presents the Environmental Evaluation for Veterans Index, or EEVI, which will provide higher education institutions and policymakers with the tools needed to assess campus environments for veterans. The EEVI is an assessment tool based on a comprehensive review of published research and recommendations related to working with the student veteran population, as well as the findings of a new multi-institutional study. The index allows institutions to clearly and consistently measure whether they have the services, policies, and sources of support necessary to assist returning veterans transition into higher education.
