The second of this fall's DiversiTEAs will be from 4 to 5 p.m., Thursday, Oct., 14, in Memorial Union Alumni Lounge B.
The session is titled "From Combat to Campus: the Challenges Veterans Face When Returning to College."
Rob Bishop and Christy Oslund, of Student Affairs, will discuss the transition from military to civilian life and the struggles veterans may have adjusting to academic life.
They will also outline programs and services offered by Michigan Tech to assist veterans returning to college.
DiversiTEAs were instituted in 2008 after a campus survey indicated such opportunity for social dialogue would be welcome. The sessions blend the interchange of ideas with the enjoyment of refreshment and teas from around the world.
The monthly event, a part of efforts to develop and celebrate diversity on campus, will continue until April 2011.
DiversiTEAs are free and open to students, faculty, staff and the community.
The host of the sessions is the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. For more information, contact Lori Weir at 487-1847 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
