New Start for Student Veterans
Post-911 war veterans are entering college by the thousands. They are returning from combat and utilizing their G.I. Bill benefits to pursue degrees in hopes of graduating and entering fulfilling careers. Record numbers of veterans have sustained serious injuries while on active duty, such as traumatic brain injury, amputations, burns, blindness, and/or post-traumatic stress disorders.
New Start for Student Veterans supports CSU student veterans, helping them achieve success as college students and ultimately in the career area of their choice. Housed at the Center for Community Partnerships on the CSU campus, New Start provides individualized guidance and mentoring including support in addressing memory and concentration challenges, organizational difficulties, adjustment to academic life, and the many challenges that veterans may be experiencing as they pursue a college degree. These services help injured veterans get a 'new start' on their lives as they re-enter the community and pursue higher education after sustaining an injury while on active duty.
