The second annual New York State Education Summit will take place over a day and a half on April 12 and 13 at Clear Path for Veterans. Colleges and universities from across the state are invited to send representatives to participate in this professional development opportunity. Faculty, staff, Veteran's advocates, coaches and campus leaders alike are encouraged to attend. 

Themes and discussions will focus on a human-centered approach to better understanding, reaching and supporting student-Veterans and their families. Our speakers are experts in their areas of focus, and we will again include our student panel that will share personal experiences and recommendations.
