Almost 400,000 veterans live in Wisconsin, or about 9% of the total state population, and each one of them faces unique challenges.
The needs of veterans and military families are evolving, particularly with education, employment, job training, entrepreneurship and family support. To better understand those needs and the resources that currently exist, UW Colleges and UW-Extension will host Preserving Pathways: A Neighborhood Conversation to Support Veterans.
The roundtable will bring key community and government stakeholders together to share best practices, discuss where gaps in services exist and collaborate in supporting those who have served our country. The event aims to connect veterans and military families with what they need for meaningful employment, education and overall wellness.
UW Colleges and Extension Chancellor Cathy Sandeen highlights the importance of having this conversation:
Chancellor Sandeen will moderate the discussion. This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are required.
