Crafton Hills College Veterans Services hosted the Inland Empire Veterans Education Collaborative on Wednesday, April 30. Representatives from local community colleges, CSU’s, military friendly non-profit organizations, and a person from each military branch attended. The discussion was how the military is providing soldiers the basic needs and skills for transitioning from military to civilian life, especially in the field of education.
Representatives from each military branch explained their out-process programs for those leaving the military. Those who attended the meeting provided feedback regarding some of the issues they see with veterans returning to civilian life and some suggestions to help resolve those issues.
The Inland Empire Veterans Education Collaborative is a network of public and private organizations that share ideas, knowledge and resources to improve the access to and quality of education services for veterans, military personnel and their families, and to increase public awareness of the unique needs of this special segment of our population. They meet 2-3 times a year.
