Veteran Reintegration on College Campuses
Northern Kentucky University
"The literature suggests that there is a chasm between civilians and veterans, with many civilians having negative perceptions of veterans (e.g. aggressive, mentally unstable). The literature has not yet explored whether these perceptions also exist among college students. Examining this topic is essential since veterans are entering universities at higher rates than ever before. By means of an electronic survey, distributed through social media, this study will examine college students’ perceptions of veterans. The findings from this study are expected to show that civilian college students have negative perceptions of veterans, similar to those held by the general civilian population."
