An adventurer at heart, Jeremy Butler began the conversation by sharing the reason he enlisted in the Navy in 1999: that famous slogan, 'Join the Navy and see the world!' But two years later, America was attacked on September 11, 2001-and Butler's outlook on military service transformed instantly. 'It went from being an adventure to being very, very real,' he explained. 'What had been a plan of doing four years in the Navy and getting out completely changed.'
Fast forward to today, and Butler is still part of the Navy Reserve. He's also the CEO of the premier veteran support organization that connects, unites, and empowers post-9/11 veterans through education, advocacy, and community.
Read on for three key insights from Butler on how higher ed institutions can better serve veteran students and active-duty military in the modern era-driving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the process.
