Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion & Guided Pathways Workshop
Presenters: Dr. Jennifer Servi-Roberts, Director of Veterans Upward Bound and Military Affiliated Initiatives, Central Carolina Community College; Dr. Shannon Landrum, Biology Instructor, Gaston College
Join us as we provide an introduction to military culture and describe the challenges and strengths of military-affiliated students as they enter higher education. Military-affiliated students are a special population who are best served by individuals familiar with strategies for mitigating issues that may arise due to the transitional process undertaken when exiting the military and entering into civilian learning/life. We will explore ways to best support military affiliated students from within our different roles in community college and discuss specific strategies for making our classrooms, our success coaching, our offices and our campuses veteran-friendly.
