Session 1:

The STARS project was developed by Dr. Holly Wheeler, Professor of English/Philosophy at MCC, in response to the expressed need for understanding and supporting the success of student veterans. This project has three main objectives:

  1. To educate the college community about the needs, concerns, and challenges of veteran students;
  2. To develop a network of faculty, staff, and administrators willing to provide assistance, support, and a safe place for veterans; and
  3. To provide visible support across campuses for veteran students.

**Those who attend the full series of workshops will receive a certificate of completion and “STARS Certified” sticker to post outside their offices. The designation provides visible support to military-affiliated students letting them know that they have entered an understanding space and that the certified individual is prepared to refer military students to the wide range of resources available.
