The transition from military to civilian life can be difficult for veterans, who often experience a sense of loss in terms of status, identity, and relationships, while also coping with challenges caused by physical and/or mental health concerns as a result of their military service. Furthermore, because the skills gained during military service do not transfer to the demands of the job market as readily as past cohorts of veterans, many veterans choose to pursue a college degree to improve their employment prospects. Though colleges have recognized the need to attend to the needs of the recent influx of student veterans, those needs are often defined from an institutional perspective, such as assisting with the bureaucratic demands of the Veterans Administration, rather than the veterans’ perspective. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the perceived structure and function of the student veteran program at Daemen College compared to other local private Western New York colleges from an institutional, programmatic, and student perspective.
