UC Clermont College creates Veterans Affairs position

UC Clermont College has created a new position to serve veterans, naming Jeff Bosworth as the academic director of veteran affairs.

The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 or the new GI Bill has been hailed as the most extensive educational assistance program for veterans since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944.

Colleges around the country are expecting an influx in enrollment by vets.

“It would seem fitting that we create a new position to support veterans who have served their country as they come home and re-train for civilian life,” said Ann Appleton associate dean of enrollment and student services.
