Committee Charge

Started in 2015, the SOCHE Veteran and Military Service Committee is charged with educating, developing, and suggesting policy, programming and GI Bill related practices that support student veterans and military connected students transitioning to college, being successful during college, and successfully transitioning out of college. Our focus includes:

  • Sharing resources for staff/faculty/administrators who work with veterans and active duty military
  • Programs that support campus education about the needs of veterans
  • Joint/shared programming among/between institutions
  • Updates on benefit changes, best practices for benefit allocation
  • Support for financial literacy education for student veterans

Councils & Committees

SOCHE is dedicated to advancing higher education through active collaboration, resource and knowledge building, and effective professional development programs. To accomplish this, SOCHE administers 16 active Councils and Committees. The purpose of a SOCHE Council or Committee is to provide an opportunity for representatives from higher education to be a resource for one another, share information and best practices, identify common challenges, and, ultimately, broaden awareness of the resources, services, and activities in higher education. SOCHE is also dependent upon the Councils and Committees for substantial input on annual professional development programs.
