According to a recent Women Veterans report, based on a survey conducted in 2011, California has both the greatest number and proportion of female veterans in the country. Many are enrolling in community colleges. In this workshop we discuss ways to support and address the individual needs of our female active duty and student veteran populations to ensure a successful education experience. (CCCVS12)
