DuBois Office of Adult Student and Veteran Services lauded

The Penn State DuBois Office of Adult Student and Veteran Services was recently recognized by Penn State's Commission for Adult Learners.  Sueann Doran, coordinator for Adult Student and Veteran Services received the recognition and served on a discussion panel for adult learner services at the University-wide Hendrick Best Practices for Adult Learners Conference at Penn State Harrisburg in May. 

The Commission for Adult Learners is composed of faculty, staff and students from several university locations. Members are dedicated to improving the adult learner experience at Penn State. Each year, the commission recognizes Penn State staff and faculty who offer outstanding support to adult students through various programs and services. 

The Office of Adult Student and Veteran Services at Penn State DuBois is a result of collaboration between the campus departments of Continuing Education, Enrollment Services, Student Services and Academic Advising. The office is responsible for providing programs of interest to adults and veterans including a portfolio workshop, a veteran transition program, job search skill development and career placement information. The office also maintains the Adult and Veteran Resource Center on campus, which provides study and meeting space, a library of resources for veterans, informational publications on careers and community resources, and more. Additionally, the office supports and advises the campus Veteran's Club. 

The Office of Adult Student and Veteran Services was created at Penn State DuBois in 2011. Since then, the campus has twice been named to Victory Media's Military Friendly Schools list. The list honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
