Support Transitioning and Returning Service Members (STARS) SESSIONS 1 & 2 offered today

The STARS initiative educated the college community about the needs, concerns, and challenges of veterans on campus; develops a network of faculty, staff, and administrators willing to provide assistance, support, and advocacy for this population; and provide visible support across multiple campuses for this at risk student group. Multiple professional development workshops are being offered. At the end of the series, attendees will receive a Veteran Friendly STARS designation sticker and a Veteran cord.

Please join us for the first two sessions of STARS Workshops being offered from 1:00 to 2:00pm today in the Career Library 2-108, located in the Career and Veteran Services.
