Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) is a safe place for Veteran transitions.
LWTech's teams understand the level of complexity, stress, and anxiety that is involved
when a person separates from the military. We utilize on and off campus resources
that support a creative safe environment, which allows our Veteran students to develop
personally and professionally. Our graduates are ready to take the next step in their
education, or their first steps into civilian employment.
Military veterans of the post-9/11 wars in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to enter higher education in ever increasing numbers. Unfortunately, colleges and universities across the country often find themselves lacking the understanding and services necessary to support their unique needs and experiences. By learning the strengths, needs, and challenges of student-veterans as they transition from the military and matriculate through higher education, advisors armed with information from the Schlossberg et al. (1995) framework will facilitate greater advocacy for student-veterans. When academic advisors, faculty members, and Transitioning Student-Veterans staff know the issues of and resources for veterans, then colleges and universities can facilitate student veterans’ achievement of personal and academic aspirations. Only through a foundation of understanding can higher education adequately assist this increasing student population.
