VET NET Ally Seminar April 22

Published: April 4, 2016

The CSULB Veterans Services Office invites you to attend the next VET NET Ally seminar on Friday, April 22, from 8 a.m.-noon.

Since 2010, more than 600 CSULB faculty, staff and students have participated in the seminar and the program has been presented at more than 25 colleges and universities in California, as well as New York, Michigan and Arizona.

This program was developed to educate faculty and staff members about the unique needs and concerns of military service members and veterans studying at CSULB. The goal of the program is to foster a campus atmosphere that supports the academic and personal success of service members and veterans, and to establish a network of visible allies to provide support and assistance to CSULB students who have served in our armed forces.

The seminar includes:

  • VET NET Ally program mission and CSULB’s approach to assisting veterans in their academic pursuits
  • Veterans experiences in the classroom
  • Military and post-service culture
  • Why I joined
  • Who would you tell? – An experiential activity addressing the reasons men and women may or may not talk about their military experience
  • Veterans issues in higher education
  • Student veteran panel
  • Being an Vet Net Ally

At the end of the training, participants will be given a decal to display in their workspace to show they are allies to CSULB’s student veterans.
