On March 27, 2019 Gail Bock , the College’s VA Certifying Official, presented Student Veterans: HFC Services and Transition to the Classroom. She discussed adjustment issues some students have in the classroom and shared campus events and services such as job fairs for veterans and various outreach events with SVA (Student Veterans of America).   She provided resources that teachers could use to  best support student veterans including internal college support resources and community resources (see the PowerPoint below).

The presentation included videos from the point of view of veteran students such as this one.

Gail recommended the site VA Campus Toolkit for resources for teachers interested in exploring resources to support veteran students.

The full PowerPoint presentation is included here. You may also reach out with questions at veterans@hfcc.edu, or contact Gail at extension 9688.
