A group of veterans service coordinators will host a panel discussion titled “Awareness and Inclusion of Military Students” from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 12, in Dresser Auditorium of the John J. Murphy Professional Building at St. Bonaventure University.
The campus will welcome several veteran service coordinators representing different colleges and universities to include the following: Dan Frontera from Erie Community College, Brad Baumgardner from Trocaire College, Robert Healy from Niagara University and Ben Randle from D’Youville College.
Dr. Barbara Trolley, a professor in St. Bonaventure’s counselor education program, said the panel was developed for a two reasons. The first is to increase awareness of the needs and services for students who are veterans and/or their spouses and children. The second is to facilitate inclusiveness and support within the campus community and local community.
Trolley said it’s important that members of the university come together for this discussion.
“Veterans and their family members may obtain an increased awareness of the services and assistance that can be offered to ease their transition to college and maximize their potential for a successful graduation,” Trolley said. “Non-veteran attendees will gain insight into global matters that exist, issues that affect the military and their families, and ways to foster an all-encompassing community spirit.”
All St. Bonaventure and local community members are welcome to attend the free panel discussion. For more information, contact Dr. Barbara Trolley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
