Green River College recently became one of Washington's first institutions of higher education to sign on to a very important initiative rolled out by the Department of Education.
The 8 Keys to Veterans' Success (also known as the 8 Keys) is a voluntary initiative that outlines specific ways that colleges and universities can support veterans as they pursue their academic and professional goals.
Some of these practices include: (1) creating a culture of trust and connectedness...to promote well-being and success for veterans; (4) coordinate and centralize campus efforts...with the creation of a designated space for them; and (8) develop systems that ensure sustainability of effective practices for veterans.
Green River has a long history of supporting their veterans and continues to ensure student success through comprehensive educational programs and support services responsive to our diverse communities.
