The Veterans Advisory Council invites the campus community to a professional development event that is designed to inform faculty, students, and staff on best practices in working with veteran students on UWM's campus and provide insight of the nuances inherent in military culture. The presenter will be Dr. Carol Hartlein-Sells, a current UWM faculty member in the department of Occupational Therapy, who has just returned from a two year stint in the army. She will share her own personal narrative of her journey in academia as a U.S. military service member re-integrating back into life in the academy, and speak to best practices in working with veteran students. Please join us in our continued effort of fostering a Veteran friendly campus community during this Veteran's week event. Refreshments will be provided.
