Summit on Student Veteran Success
D'Youville College
Buffalo, NY
May 20-22, 2014

Conference Overview

The Summit on Student Veteran Success will explore the nexus between the two major factors contributing to student veteran success: academic supports and practical/functional conditions. The Summit provides academics and practitioners the collaborative opportunity to examine these components of success and how colleges and universities can best support student veterans and veteran dependents.

The Summit is hosted by D’Youville College, D’Youville Office of Veterans Affairs, D’Youville Business Department, and D’Youville Center for Professional Studies and will take place at the historic Connecticut Street Armory.
