RoadTripNation: The Next Mission Video
If you have some downtime over the break, I highly recommend watching this short film that follows three recently separated veterans as they road trip across the U.S. and interview several other veterans on their transition away from military service. It’s worth the time and could be an excellent resource for programming on your campuses – either staff development or student programming! Click here to stream the video online.

Career-Ready Student Veterans Act Passes U.S. Senate
In early December the U.S. Senate approved a spending bill with a provision, the Career-Ready Student Veterans Act, that would prohibit institutions from receiving GI Bill benefits for military-connected students in programs that do not meet the accreditation, licensing, or certification requirements needed for career-eligibility in the appropriate fields. This legislation was introduced after a 2015 report highlighted student complaints, lawsuits, and a review of for-profit institutions that revealed 20 percent of programs studied did not qualify its graduates for state licensure or certification in particular fields.
