INSCT Director of Research/Research Assistant Professor Corri Zoli—whose most recent work examines the perception of military veterans toward post-service education and employment—has been invited by Warrior-Scholar Project Executive Director Sidney T. Ellington to join the WSP Academic Board of Directors.
Enlisted veterans often entered the military directly from high school, resulting in a long absence from the classroom and a concomitant lack of confidence when considering academia. WSP seeks to unlock veterans’ potential to succeed in higher education by addressing their misperceptions with immersive one- to two-week long academic boot camps (including college readiness classes) hosted at universities throughout the US during summer break.
Zoli—who presented to the 2015 WSP academic boot camp held at SU in July 2015—joins other distinguished members of WSP’s academic board, including Gen. David H. Petraeus (Ret.) and Ambassador Paul Russo.
