Colleges and universities have a unique ability to reach Veterans where they are as the Post-9/11 GI Bill brings student Veterans to campuses in record numbers.

If you interact with student Veterans in or out of the classroom, you can support their mental health. Understanding the challenges and opportunities that student Veterans face can improve communication and help build trust and understanding, enhancing their academic experience. In addition, connecting student Veterans to the resources they need can make a real difference in their well-being.

Explore VA’s programs and services to download helpful resources and learn more about ways to serve the student Veterans on your campus.

In Veterans’ Own Words

Going to school after serving in the military provides opportunities to Veterans. But sometimes, it can also bring challenges. Listen to stories of student Veterans who adjusted to challenges by reaching out for support.
