Faculty Syllabus Recommendation

Creating a syllabus that reflects an awareness of student veterans as a student group can communicate your interest and respect for their service and success in school.

One possibility is to include a veteran-friendly statement in your syllabus. This one has been used at a number of different universities.

"Veterans and active duty military personnel with special circumstances (e.g., upcoming deployments, drill requirements, disabilities) are welcome and encouraged to communicate these, in advance if possible, to the instructor."
