Rutgers Military Cultural Competency
Thursday, June 9, 2016 @ 2:00pm EDT
In studies conducted at colleges and universities nationwide, student veterans have reported feeling as if non-veteran college students and faculty did not appreciate, understand, relate to, or respect their service. In interviews conducted with student veterans regarding these feelings, the veterans emphasized their interactions with professors as particularly problematic. In their accounts, student veterans described feeling offended or angered by what they perceived as the professors’ condemnation of the military. Rutgers Military Cultural Competency training will provide the Rutgers community and our partners with a general overview of the military so that professionals can more easily communicate with all veterans and military.
