Back in December, the Consortium of Military Veteran Educators (CMVE) kicked off its Kognito Challenge Grants, allowing colleges and universities to earn $500 in support of their military-connected students by boosting campus participation with Kognito’s Veterans on Campus interactive online training module geared toward improving military cultural competencies across campus. In 2016, CMVE purchased a 2-year agreement licensing all public colleges and universities for free, unlimited access to the tool through June 2018. CMVE’s goal is for 5,000 faculty and staff around the state to complete the modules and, as part of this challenge, each campus has a unique target to hit based on their share of undergraduate enrollment to receive their sub-grant. More details and an institutional progress chart is available on the CMVE website. Forty-two members of our NMC community has completed the training. Only seven more are needed to meet our target and receive the grant for our student veterans activities.
