Student Veterans: Does How We Welcome Them Matter?

The Journal of College Orientation, Transition, and Retention
Key findings on student veterans' sense of mattering from this study include: 

"Student veterans who attended an orientation session with veteran-specific content (Group C) reported a statistically significant increase in their sense of mattering to their school over student veterans who did not attend any orientation session (Group A)."

"The same cannot be asserted for student veterans who attended a regular orientation session (Group B) because they did not score significantly higher than student veterans who did not attend any orientation session at all (Group A)."

"Results indicate how small changes in traditional programs can have a significant impact on student veterans’ sense of mattering to their university."
