Veterans Support and Mentoring Program
Design and implement a Military Support Programs and Networks (M-SPAN) portfolio to address the needs of military or veteran connected students. The M-SPAN portfolio will be a suite of resources offered to participants who are a member of the uniformed services, a veteran of the uniformed services, or a spouse of a service member or veteran. The main goals of the M-SPAN are to provide resources to help applicable individuals (1) ease the transition to college; (2) improve sense of belonging on campus; (3) identify health concerns and connect them with appropriate resources; (4) create a community and a source of support among knowledgeable peers; and (5) improve academic performance. A peer advisor support program will be part of this project. Veterans are strongly encouraged to apply. This position will remain open until filled.
