Maps to Credentials

Providing Effective Effecting Pathways for Student Veterans

March 14, 2013 2:00 PM

​As the American higher education system looks to more effectively serve student veterans, we were pleased to host a webinar  to discuss new methods of applying veterans’ training in higher education. 

Presented in collaboration with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the webinar discussed:

  • Creating credential roadmaps that maximize the application of veterans’ training and occupational specialties
  • Identifying new ways to increase retention and attainment rates for student veterans
  • Integrating programs and services for student veterans
  • Advancing faculty engagement and institutional change



The webinar brought together leaders from 3 community colleges to share lessons they are learning as they engage campus constituencies in the process of creating degree maps and integrating programs and services for student veterans.

Presenters included:

Bridget Petzold

Program Coordinator, Business Administration/Operations Management, Fayetteville Technical Community College

Anne Johnson

Dean of Business and Social Sciences, Inver Hills Community College

Michael Reiner

Associate Provost, Academic Affairs, Miami Dade College

Mary Beth Lakin

Director of College and University Partnerships, ACE (moderator)

Laura Winters

This webinar was presented as part of Maps to Credentials: Creating an Integrated Prior Learning Assessment Model to Accelerate Postsecondary Attainment, a national initiative funded by the Fund for Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE). The Maps to Credentials project is grateful to FIPSE for the opportunity to provide this webinar to higher education institutions across the U.S.
