IU Bloomington Disability Roundtable Accessible University Series
"Veteran Services: Students who are Returning Veterans"
An Accessible University presentation by Margaret Baechtold
In November we observe Veterans Day, a holiday to celebrate and honor our veterans for their service and patriotism and to acknowledge their sacrifices made for fellow Americans. Many service men and women are returning home from conflict with a range of disabilities. As they transition back into higher education, colleges, and universities, we must be able to meet the needs of this population in both academics and student services. The Disability Roundtable is sponsoring this timely Accessible University seminar with a focus on veteran students with disabilities at Indiana University.
Margaret Baechtold, Director of Veterans Support Services at Indiana University, will lead a discussion about veteran students on campus. Margaret will talk about the veteran student population, the role of her office, disability issues that these students face while attending college, and what the future holds for veteran student services as this population continues to grow.
Bring your questions and join us for this timely and relevant discussion! Please also share this information with others who may be interested.
