TBI and PTSD Impacted Student Veterans

. There are more than four-hundred Veterans and Military Service Members on our campus.   An unknown number of them have returned from combat zones with the invisible wounds of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  A recent survey of 14,673 staff and faculty members from twenty geographically dispersed U.S. Colleges revealed that more than 70% of them do not feel adequately prepared to recognize when Student-Veterans are exhibiting signs of TBI and/or PTSD.  This workshop is designed to assist staff and faculty members in creating a supportive environment for our Student-Veterans and Military Service Members that may be exhibiting signs of TBI and/or PTSD.
