Rutgers Veteran Civilian Dialogue
Bergen Rooms (255, 256, 257)
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War. In light of that and the fact that many former and current Rutgers students
are veterans of that war, the Rutgers Newark Student Veterans Organization invites you to the 4th Annual Rutgers Newark Veteran-Civilian Dialogue.
The Veteran-Civilian Dialogue is a chance for veterans and non-veterans to come together in a friendly and collaborative setting to share and discuss
experiences, feelings, and ideas about what makes veterans and civilians different or similar and most importantly how those perceptions affect us
all. The purpose of this Dialogue is for participants to reach a common ground and mutual understanding in the interest of ultimately helping to
bridge the gap that often exists between veterans and non-veterans. This year’s Veteran-Civilian Dialogue will focus on the perception of veterans
in the classroom and will use the 10 year anniversary of the Iraq War as a starting point for the conversation.
There are over 300 student veterans at Rutgers-Newark. The veteran organization on campus is unique as it includes undergraduate students,
graduate students, law students, medical students, faculty, and staff members.
