Dr. Meredith Kleykamp, associate professor of sociology at the University of Maryland, will be the keynote speaker for the Military and Veterans State conference. Her studies focus on the military culture and the soldier's transition back into civilian life. The goal of the conference is to educate participants about the military culture and the diversity service members bring to campus.
Breakout Sessions: Various sessions throughout the day discuss the unique aspects of military and family culture, how colleges and universities can best be prepared to help military members succeed and give tools to help overcome the challenges of transitioning back into civilian life.
The conference is free to UNI employees. The Military Friendly Employment fair will run concurrently.
