Veterans and Social Technology Survey - From September through November 2013, a comprehensive survey was sent to student veterans across the state. In total, the survey received 802 responses during this time, with 50 colleges represented by at least three or more responses. The goal of the survey was to assess the needs for certain kinds of services that might be available to veterans, while exploring the possibility of using social networking and video chat technology as a means for providing those services. In addition, this survey also touched on the difficulties that some veterans face when they begin studying at a community college.

Essential Practices for Serving Student Veterans Study - The Chancellor’s Office commissioned a statewide study on the most effective practices in serving student veterans, both with and without disabilities. Wayne K. Miller II, PhD, was the primary researcher for this effort. Dr. Miller gathered data from student veterans and veterans’ services practitioners via online surveys and a series of live, in-person focus groups held on college campuses across the system. The study identifies the 8 most essential services identified by these two groups and provides supporting data.

Veterans Resource Center Pilot Project Review - In 2010, the Chancellors Office collaborated with the High Tech Center Training Unit, to offer free hardware, software and assistive technology to campuses interested in creating a Veteran Resource Center.  Twenty-four centers were established via this offering.  Nine of the twenty-four centers were visited and informally reviewed four years after the initial offering.  This report provides a summary of those reviews.

The Chancellor’s Office currently has three different sources for student veteran data.

VA 260 Report - In April of each year the United States Department of Veterans Affairs provides the Chancellor’s office with a VA 260 Report.  This report identifies veterans, active duty members, reservists and dependents, who received education benefits administered by the VA, while attending college in California.  Please note, this report only provides a snap shot of those attending a CCC and receiving VA education benefits, during the month of April each year.    

Form 3 ReportThe Chancellor’s office gathers an unduplicated count of veterans, active duty, reservists and dependents, receiving VA education benefits to attend a CCC, through the Student Services Accounting and Reporting for Community Colleges Form #3 reporting.  This data, collected from financial aid offices in our system, covers a full school year. Unfortunately, this report only provides an aggregate total for these 4 student groups. 

CCCCO MIS Data Mart– The Chancellor’s office collects data on Student Military Status (SGO1) and Student Military Dependent Status (SGO2) directly from colleges/districts across the system.   To pull a query for either of these populations, select either a statewide/districtwide/collegewide search, select a term to search and view the report.  The data for this population will appear on page 2 of the report.

The CCCCO annual reports below reflect the total headcount for veterans, active duty, and dependents and include data on gender, age, race, education goal, DSPS, and BOG fee waiver.
