Over the past decade, higher education has faced a number of demographic, economic, and social challenges, with non-profit colleges suffering the most in terms of declining enrollment of traditional-aged students. Concurrent with these trends was a marked increase in student veteran enrollment, largely due to the passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill, with the student veteran population doubling in size from 2009 to 2013. Eager to recruit student veterans, colleges have sought to distinguish themselves as “Military Friendly,” though that distinction remains poorly defined in terms of distinct policies, procedures, and services, particularly given the unique challenges faced by student veterans. To this end, recent surveys of college faculty indicate the overwhelming majority report being ill-equipped to address the needs of student veterans, a feeling often shared by student veterans. The purpose of this study is to evaluate perceptions of faculty preparedness for working with student veterans at Daemen College.
