The SECond Mission AmeriCorps VISTA program employs best practices identified by the Departments of Veterans Affairs, Defense, Labor, and Education to support veterans’ access to and success in higher education that are currently not offered (or are in the inchoate stages of development) at partner campuses and organizations. These practices include: 1) Collaborating with local communities and organizations, including government agencies, to align and coordinate various services for veterans. 2) Creating a culture of trust and connectedness on campuses through the development of peer-to-peer mentoring programs and support groups. 3) Creating a uniform set of data tools to collect and track information on student veterans, including demographics, retention, and degree completion. 4) Providing comprehensive professional development for faculty and staff.
