Who are the Veterans on Campus? Untangling the Identity from the Experience

Tuesday, November 9, 2021
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM


Center for Teaching Excellence

Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511


If you have elected to attend this workshop via web conference, log-in as a guest at https://us.bbcollab.com/guest/26138929cc6249b49375333b9dc5c049. This is a Blackboard Collaborate Session.


Join us for a panel discussion with student veterans. Like most endeavors, serving in the military is a very subjective experience. Not all veterans go to war and those who do may not be negatively affected by it. After their time in the military ends, many veterans transition into education or training programs. There are hundreds of veterans, at all levels, on the UofSC Columbia campus alone. Come engage with a few of them about their education experiences and also meet the staff who support them.


This workshop is an elective session for a certificate of completion in Teaching Towards Inclusive Excellence.

** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


Participants must attend a workshop in its entirety to receive credit for the workshop in their training records. Late arrival and/or early exit from a workshop invalidates receiving credit. If technology issues require rescheduling of a workshop, participants must attend the workshop at the rescheduled time to receive credit. These policies apply to all CTE workshops/events, including workshops that qualify as requirements/electives for a certificate of completion.
