UW Regents to discuss better services for student veterans

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The UW Board of Regents will talk about student veterans Thursday – and how to provide better services to those people.

The state approved a modern version of the “GI Bill” a few years ago which gives free tuition to eligible veterans. And UW officials say they’ve seen significant increases in the number of military veterans on their campuses.

In addition, some have earned college credits while in the military – and many have gained leadership experience that can be valuable to their future employers.

Among other things, the Regents will talk about ways to help veterans understand the benefits to which they’re entitled – and helping them re-adjust to civilian society.
