Staff members from Syracuse University’s Office of Veteran and Military Affairs (OVMA) and Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) recently traveled to Las Vegas to share expertise around serving military-connected students during the annual National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) symposium.
Every year, NASPA brings student veterans, advocates, thought leaders, stakeholders and supporters in higher education together to discuss best practices and address common challenges. The three-day conference consisted of breakout sessions and workshops aimed at bettering the military-connected student experience and understanding the unique perspective and skills each student brings to campus.
“Events like NASPA empower and inform our student veterans and staff as we remain dedicated to serving the veteran and military-connected community at Syracuse,” Ron Novack, OVMA executive director says. “We are honored to attend and influence the sessions. The insight and knowledge brought back to campus from the conference enriches the student experience at Syracuse University as we continue our work to be the best place for veterans, their families and military-connected students.”
