MCC Faculty to Expand Program for Supporting Military Veterans and Service Members

Congratulations to Dr. Holly Wheeler (English-Philosophy) on the development of STARS (Supporting Transitioning and Returning Service Members), a four-part training series now co-sponsored and offered by Upstate New York College Collaboration (UNYCC). The project has three main objectives:

  1. To educate the college community about the needs, concerns, and challenges of veteran students;
  2. To develop a network of faculty, staff, and administrators willing to provide assistance, support, and a safe place for veterans; and
  3. To provide visible support across campuses for veteran students.

For the Spring 2022 sessions, Dr. Wheeler and Eric Wheeler, Assistant Director of Veteran Services at MCC, will lead discussions on a range of topics, from supporting military students in the classroom to understanding veteran benefits.
