These resources are provided as an addendum to the publication Helping Veterans Succeed: A Handbook for Higher Education Administrators. "Helping veterans succeed" is a concept that has come to include not only veterans but also their families with post-secondary education enrollment and persistence. Changes in federal statute and executive actions have greatly promoted the expansion of services toward veterans and their families. Since the Post-9/11 GI Bill was passed in 2009, close to 1 million veterans, service members, and eligible dependents have taken advantage of the educational benefits available to them.
