While more than half a million veterans, their dependents and active-duty military personnel are enrolled at institutions of higher education, 88% of student veterans drop out within the first year of pursuing a degree. Standing in the way of their degrees are issues like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a lack of camaraderie, and the rocky transition from a structured environment to unstructured academia. Experts from the University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver), Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver), and University of Denver (DU) will come together to discuss the role their institutions play in helping Denver student veterans transition from combat zones to classrooms to the workforce and beyond.
