D.C. university to help professors help veterans transition to classroom
George Washington University’s veteran services office earned a grant this week to help teach professors how to transition soldiers-turned-students from the war zone to the classroom.
Veteran services coordinator Michael Ruybal, an 11-year U.S. Army veteran, will help create training sessions and webinars teaching professors how to connect with veterans and understand military culture. Ruybals’ project was one of 11 to secure funding from GW’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion last week.
The two-year old office gave out $50,000 to groups of students, faculty and staff with ideas about ways to promote different kinds of diversity on a campus that is 57 percent white.
