Created by the American Council on Education (ACE), this online resource is designed to help institutions of higher education build effective programs for veteran students and share information. It highlights a variety of best practices and includes video clips, profiles of student veterans programs across the U.S., and a searchable database of tools and resources.
Rod Davis, director, Veterans Support Office, The Texas A&M University System: One of our primary goals for the toolkit is to create a collaborative learning environment in which faculty, staff, and administrators share experiences, challenges, and victories in their journey to serve student veterans. To foster this learning environment, ACE will highlight one of our participating institutions in every newsletter.
“Universities and colleges seeking to start or upgrade their veterans support programs are encouraged to draw upon the experiences of successful programs elsewhere and on the recommendations found in the ACE Toolkit for Veteran Friendly Institutions, the Operation College Promise Field Guide, [see below] and similar models. It is also helpful to increase interaction with other providers through networking at state, regional, or national veterans service and administrator organizations and conferences. And always share. There’s so much to do, and every idea can be valuable whether generated at the smallest campus or the largest.
