UNIV 101 for Veterans

University 101 for Veterans is a new, two-credit hour fall semester course designed to help military veterans transition to college life and achieve their academic goals at KU. The course is small, enrolling about 19 students.

The course introduces student veterans to KU, university resources, and university expectations, and helps students develop the skills needed to meet and exceed these expectations. Students identify, develop, and apply their individual strengths to the exploration and examination of University resources, academic skill development, and the diverse KU community. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Academic planning and personal wellness planning: students will be introduced to the KU Core, academic and career advising resources, and wellness resources in order to design and prepare their own academic plans. 
  • Academic skill development: students will develop, enhance, and demonstrate college level reading, critical thinking, and communication skills using the KU Common Book. 
  • Information literacy: students will develop information literacy skills, including identifying an information need, distinguishing between different kinds of information sources, composing search strategies, and retrieving useful and relevant information. 
  • Experiential learning: students will become aware of experiential learning opportunities and the benefits of extending their learning outside the classroom.
