Chancellor Brice W. Harris says supporting student veterans is a “national imperative”
SACRAMENTO, Calif.—December 4, 2013—The third California Community Colleges Veterans Summit took place December 5 - 6 in Newport Beach, California. This annual event provides professionals from Community Colleges and four-year universities the necessary tools to help their staff and administrators to better support student veterans on their campuses with completing their educational goals and transitioning to higher education or careers. This year's summit offered sessions on various student veteran issues, including apprenticeship opportunities, mental wellness, and the development of on-campus Veteran Resource Centers.
Of California’s 2.2 million veterans, 75 percent are enrolled as students in one of the state’s 112 Community Colleges. Community Colleges Chancellor Brice W. Harris says the nation’s largest system of higher education proudly accepts the responsibility of supporting student veterans through the transition into civilian life through education.
“Our Community College system is constantly seeking ways to improve the educational experience of our veterans,” says Chancellor Harris. “We will continue to serve those who have served us by providing the highest quality education for our veterans at an affordable cost.”
Keynote speakers for the event include Dr. Jannett Jackson, Chancellor of the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District, who has more than 30 years of experience in the Community College system and in the U.S Armed Services, and Assemblymember Rocky Chavez, former Marine Corps member.
