Increasing the number of, and support for, student veterans throughout the North State will be addressed at a regional conference Wednesday, April 16, in Selvester’s Café on the California State University, Chico campus.

The fourth annual event will include roundtable discussions, a student veterans panel and an address by Active Duty and Veterans Affairs Director Pat O’Rourke, Office of the Chancellor, California State University.

The goal of the conference is to strengthen the support network for veterans attending any of the colleges or universities in the region and find solutions to challenges they face.

The conference will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Attendance is by invitation only. College advisers and counselors and veterans support agency representatives will be attending along with student veterans.
