Thursday, November 12, 2020
As part of a Veterans Day series on supporting veterans, the American Council on Education (ACE) recognized the work of the Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) Veterans Center in ensuring a smooth transition to college for student-veterans, active duty military, Guard/Reservists, and their eligible dependents. Over the past decade, BHCC’s Veterans Center has supported nearly 5,000 student-veterans in achieving their education goals, with nearly half transferring to four-year institutions.
The article, titled “Over a Decade Serving Student Veterans at Bunker Hill Community College,” highlights the role of the College’s Veterans Center staff in providing specialized services for student-veterans, advocating for student-veterans on campus and within the community, and providing resources and assistance through relationships with community-based partners. A few BHCC Student-Veteran stars are also highlighted within the ACE Member Spotlight.
