Training To Assist Veterans On Campus Offered

LEXINGTON, Ky.  --  A Department of Defense psychology training consortium is offering a one-day program next month at the University of Kentucky for faculty and staff in Kentucky's higher education system.

The program is for employees who regularly work with student veterans and military students.

UK Veterans Resource Center Coordinator Anthony Dotson says it's the first time for the training to be offered in Kentucky. Dotson says Kentucky's student veterans don't succeed at the same rate as those outside the state, and the training may help address some of the causes.
