Feedback form is now closed.
This session is a panel discussion that will focus on understanding and discussing the global identity of student Veterans with an emphasis on the potential implications of their unique, individual experiences when related to their global activity. We will consider broad topics within Veteran identity and how this can be an advantage or challenge in traveling as a student. We will consider cultural perceptions surrounding Veterans where global engagement is involved and the ethics that come into play for any global traveler as they relate to this unique group of individuals. This discussion will encourage questions.
