Buffalo State Helps Veterans Transition to Campus Life

Buffalo State Helps Veterans Transition to Campus Life

Posted: November 5, 2009
Fall enrollment of veterans and military personnel at Buffalo State is up 30 percent over last spring and is expected to grow further.

The increase is indicative of a trend on campuses nationwide spurred by the new, expanded Post-9/11 GI Bill, stepped-up recruiting efforts, and the job-constrained economy.

At Buffalo State, several new programs and initiatives have been started to help veterans and military personnel transition to campus life and to expedite paperwork required for certification and benefits. In Cleveland Hall, the Veterans Office was established under the direction of associate vice president Margaret Shaw-Burnett as part of her role with Continuing Professional Studies. In the Registrar’s Office, the often time-consuming task of veteran certification has come under the purview of Gail Rettig, associate registrar, and Pamela Bohin, agency program aide. Both offices are staffed by veterans who bring valued expertise and perspective.
