Some of the military-affiliated population feel out of place as a student on a college campus or as an employee in the civilian workforce. Many are searching for the camaraderie that came so naturally in uniform. Support services and programs exist to help Service members make their transition, but the majority of those individuals or agencies are either on the military installation, or they exist in the community. The missing component is the X factor that will bridge the gap between one side of the gate to the other. The X factor that will create the "bridge" is a shift in the community, campus, and workplace cultures generated through training, awareness, collaboration, and action. This session will focus on creating that bridge.
