How Key Decision Points Affect Student Veterans' Education Life Cycle Outcomes
Track: SVA Track (Sponsored by The Washington Center)
The lifecycle of a student veteran comprises key decision points, each representing possible courses to various levels of success. These decisions may have a profound effect on their future. Student Veterans of America (SVA) in collaboration with the PwC Charitable Foundation began examining how different decisions impact educational lifecycle outcomes, through the Student Veteran Life Cycle Atlas. We seek to learn more about how key decision points connect to various educational and employment outcomes. By analyzing the education lifecycle of hundreds of student veterans, the project discovers key decisions points and the different outcomes from those decisions. The goal is to provide veterans, at any point in their educational lifecycle, facing a decision, an instrument to explore and evaluate different outcomes based on previous student veterans' experiences. The presentation will cover findings and results discovered in the past year and provide a discussion for next steps.
