The Aurora Foundation Serving those who serve others...Follow The Aurora Foundation on Twitter @VetNetUSA

The Aurora Foundation assists colleges and universities in helping veterans who enter the scholastic environment graduate from college and enter the workforce. We envision this as a transition from “Boots to Books to Business.” Our programs and partnerships are all structured under each phase of this transition, working with others who support our military men and women in uniform as well as those in higher education who are dedicated to providing a veteran-friendly campus with resources that enable veteran students to succeed. Today, The Aurora Foundation is led by an experienced and diverse Board of Directors focused on the mission to “enable veterans to successfully graduate from college and enter the workforce."

Mission: To enable veterans to successfully graduate from college and enter the civilian workforce.

Student Veterans: Learning about Critical Issues Along with my Students

https://blogs.chapman.edu/dodge/2016/03/11/student-veterans-learning-about-critical-issues-along-with-my-students/

One of the great joys of teaching is exploring new subjects and learning alongside our students. Today I sat and listened to five passionate speakers talking about the unbelievable and seemingly unending problems many of our military veterans face when they return to their homes after serving our co…

How to Help Veterans Succeed in College

#StudentVets | Testimonials from The New York Times

"We never send a new recruit to war without proper training and equipment. We should never send a veteran to college without reasonable guidance for what lies ahead."

Who should be responsible for informing veterans about the nuances of higher education? Once a veteran is on campus, it may be too late, argues Ryan Gallucci of the nonprofit organization Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Not only did student veterans need to receive on-the-job-training, but also needed the "soft skills" (people skills, ti…
