Faculty and Staff Training Modules
Faculty and staff at U-M are invited to workshops and training to help them best serve military-connected students.
We invite faculty and staff working at the University of Michigan to participate in online and/or scheduling face-to-face training with our staff. After completion of one of the training modules, listed below, you can request our “Military-Connected Student Friendly” card to proudly display on your office wall, window or door to signify you have received training about military-connected students.

Video and 10-15 minute intro for meetings
Module 1 consists of the Veteran and Military Services Coordinator (Phil Larson) to come to a meeting or your work site to give a 10-15 minute overview of Military Connected Student concerns. This would feature the 7 minute video (above) plus observations and handouts from Phil. He would be available for additional Q&A time if requested.
Military-Connected Student Panel
Module 2 will consist of a panel of military-connected students. To have adequate time, please plan on an hour session. This training will consist of 40 minutes of prepared questions plus an additional 10-20 minutes of participant questions and answers.
If you have a request (ex: undergraduate only, LSA students only, dependents etc.) please indicate in the “Special Request” section of the form.
Faculty and Staff Workshop
Using research and personal interactions, Mr. Larson will discuss the benefits of military-connected students at the University of Michigan, talk about common myths and stereotypes that military-connected students face, discuss strategies for student veteran and military-connected student success and talk about military-connected students and DE&I initiatives – specifically the intersection of military-connected identities and those of other groups.
