MnSCU was cited for its partnership work with the Minnesota National Guard, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, MyMilitary Education.org, operated by the support center at Perham, and MyMilitary GPS LifePlan. A summary of the report follows:
““Investing in Veterans: The Need for Career and Education Advising” explains what effective advising for student veterans looks like. It then surveys the advising options currently available to veterans and concludes that additional career and education advising resources—especially those available to veterans prior to enrollment in postsecondary institutions—are needed to ensure that veterans are able to take full advantage of their federal education benefits. The report concludes with a series of recommendations aimed at providing advising to veterans at every stage of the transition to civilian life, from separation from the military to enrollment in postsecondary institutions”
