Because The Maine Community College System (MCCS) is aware of that fact that student veterans and those veterans seeking to enroll in college have specific needs, each of the colleges in the MCCS system is working to develop and strengthen target responses to meet those needs. The Maine Community College System is therefore providing this report in accordance with Public Law 2015, Chapter 465, enacted during the 127th Legislature. The legislation requires the University of Maine System and MCCS to: (1) Identify the needs of student-veterans and potential student-veterans attempting to achieve a postsecondary education to degree completion, including but not limited to their ability to gain admission to the University of Maine System or the Maine Community College System, successfully meet the requirements of a course of study, successfully transition to civilian life in a supportive educational environment, obtain available federal veterans' benefits and successfully meet personal and financial obligations; (2) Identify existing services specifically for student-veterans and other services available to student-veterans on each campus that meet the needs identified in subsection 1; (3) Assess the effectiveness in meeting the needs identified in subsection 1 of existing services specifically for student-veterans and other services available to student-veterans on each campus; (4) Determine what services are not currently being offered that, if offered, would meet the needs identified in subsection 1; and (5) Propose services and solutions that fulfill the needs identified in subsection 1 on each campus or across campuses that are based upon best practices in postsecondary educational institutions within the State and nationwide. During the fall semester of 2016, the MCCS conducted a survey of those students identified as receiving veteran benefits at the seven colleges. The survey was sent to over 500 students and, as explained in the report, has provided helpful insight into veterans' experiences within the Maine Community College System. In addition, the MCCS has led ongoing discussions with staff at all of the colleges on the challenges veterans face and how best to respond to them. Although the survey results indicated that most student veterans are pleased with the campus environment and services available to them, they were helpful in identifying areas for future focus and attention.
