AUS Awarded “Partners for Veteran Supportive Campuses” Certificate

This year, Antioch University Seattle’s application for a “Partners for Veteran Supportive Campuses” Certificate was accepted by the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs! This certificate will cover AUS for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 school years.

The Washington State Department for Veterans Affairs Partners for Veteran Supportive Campuses website explains that the goal of this certificate program is to:

  • “Increase awareness of veteran’s programs on and off campus”
  • “Provide staff members with a core set of veteran cultural competencies”
  • “Encourage campuses to implement best practices and policies designed to foster social support, acceptance, a welcoming environment, and a setting that meaningfully acknowledges the contributions of our veterans”
  • “Encourage veterans to use GI Bill benefits”
  • “Help veterans succeed in post-secondary education and training”
  • “Ensure staff and veterans have access to services through WDVA and its federal and local partners”
  • “Encourage the exchange of information between participating organizations to support veteran success”

In addition, in the words of this program, the certificate “is offered to any post-secondary education or training institution operating in Washington State as long as the institution is approved by a Washington State Approving Authority to accept GI Bill benefits.”
