Student veterans and service members face significant challenges as they transition from their military experience to the civilian world. This session includes a brief presentation of ongoing research that seeks to describe student veterans’ perceptions of leadership in the military and in civilian organizations. Results of this research will be used to identify shared concepts and theories as a means to help students expand and adapt their military leadership knowledge and skills as they transition.
