Learning to Thrive at The Nexus of Conflict and Creativity: Veterans Studies at St. Leo University

Diversity and Inclusion is a huge topic of discussion in corporate America these days, but many companies – and the people that work for them – often forget that being a Veteran is a recognized diversity category. Although each person is an individual on their own journey, the Veteran community does share certain characteristics based on the experiences they have had.

To better understand what it means to be a Veteran, a first-in-the-nation Veterans Studies program has been introduced at St. Leo University. Dr. Karen Hannel is their Chair of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies and Dr. Luke McCleese is their Director of Military Affairs and Services as well as the co-creator of the Veteran Studies Major. This program is available to veterans and non-veterans alike and covers everything from legendary warriors from medieval worlds through military psychology and the role of military in the modern world.

In this episode of Veteran Voices, co-hosted by return guest Mary Kate Soliva from Vets2Industry and Scott Luton, Karen and Luke describe:

• Why it is important to have a dedicated Veteran Studies program available and what it entails

• Some of the inaccurate or non-representative stereotypes that exist about Veterans in the civilian population, and how Veterans Studies can address them

• The challenges associated with transitioning out of the military, regardless of the length of time served, and how Veterans can get the support they need
