Shout out to Keith Casey, CUW’s Director of Veteran Services, who will sit on a panel at the American Legion national convention in Milwaukee tomorrow morning.

The session, titled “Opening Doors Online: Access, Accountability & Excellence in Veteran Distance Learning,” will address the needs and challenges of veteran students who attend classes online.

“About 61 percent of our student veterans attend classes virtually online,” Casey said. “At Concordia, we work closely with the CUW Academic Resource Center, or ARC, to make sure these student have every resource available to help them succeed, whether they attend online or in-person.”

One example is the “Syllabus and Blackboard Crash Course” tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 1) from noon – 2 p.m. at the Academic Resource Center on campus. The session is aimed at veterans, but open to any CUW student. If you’re interested in attending, there’s no need to register, just drop by the ARC in LU200. More information is HERE.

Thanks, Keith, for taking such good care of students who have given so much to our country!
