Minnesota State will host a conference for veteran service providers with a goal of further improving services to those Minnesotans who have served our country.
The conference on Friday, Oct. 7, at St. Cloud State University will focus on improving communication and collaboration among individuals and organizations that serve veterans. The agenda features speakers from a wide variety of agencies and service providers including Minnesota State, the National Guard, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs, the Minnesota Department of Military Affairs and the U.S. Department of Labor.
Keynote addresses will be delivered by:
Minnesota State is hosting the conference because it has special expertise in this area, as it serves 10,500 veterans every year with veteran-friendly policies and support services that make higher education accessible and affordable. These policies include translating skills and training that veterans acquired during their service to our country into credentials they can use to further their civilian career.
“The colleges and universities of Minnesota State take great pride in serving more veterans than all other higher education alternatives in the state combined,” said Chancellor Steven Rosenstone. “We are pleased to be hosting this tremendously important conference and we look forward to sharing best practices with colleagues across the state who offer other critical services to veterans.”
