Mission Promise Kept - A Living and Learning Community for Women Veterans
American veterans deserve gratitude, respect, and support. Women veterans, in particular, often face unique challenges when working toward their higher education goals such as underutilization of Veterans Administration (VA) benefits, feeling like second-class citizens in the eyes of the VA, and military sexual trauma and/or post-traumatic stress disorder to name a few.

This webinar will focus on Stephens College’s new program Mission Promise Kept. Elizabeth Herrera, executive director, will share the "whys" and "hows" of this first comprehensive college program designed to meet the full spectrum of living and learning needs of women veterans.

This webinar will be one hour with time allotted for questions. Resources, as they are available, will be posted to our Past Events page of the MHEC website: https://www.mhec.org/convening/past-events.

Jun 8, 2022 01:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
