Tusculum University to offer two new classes for veterans starting in the 2020-21 academic year
Military veterans now students at Tusculum University will have an opportunity to take two new courses next year designed to help them transition from military life to student life.
The fall course, called “Tusculum Experience for Military-Affiliated Students” will tackle any issues students may have hindering their academic success as well as get them accustomed to civilian life. The spring course, called “Leadership Studies for Military-Affiliated Students”, will help assist veterans with things like career preparation and expand on topics like civic engagement learned from the previous class.
“By having the Veteran Service Office conduct these courses, it establishes a closer, stronger connection between that office and each military-affiliated student,” said Dave Laney, Tusculum Director of Veterans Services. “This connection will ensure students know the available resources and how to access them throughout their collegiate experience. All military-affiliated students will have a closer networking cohort that will ease the stress of disconnection from the military and strengthen their sense of belonging.”
Tusculum was recently awarded a $95,000 grant from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission to implement the two classes starting in the 2020-21 academic year.
