California Miramar University Participates in “Women in Transition Resource Expo”

Online mba programs accredited

Point Loma, CA – October 18, 2013 – The National Veterans Transition Services, Inc. (NVTSI), also known as REBOOT Workshops, joined with Point Loma Nazarene University and 50 local and national businesses to present the “Women in Transition Resource Expo.” California Miramar University Registrar KL Alston represented the university at the event.

Held on October 8, 2013 at Liberty Station Conference Center in Point Loma, California, the program was hosted by Octavia Harris, CMC, U.S. Navy retired and featured a panel composed of Lenora Langlais, CDR, U.S. Navy, Chermaine M. Harrell, Sgt .Maj, U.S. Marine Corps (ret.), Kitty Harris, U.S. Navy Veteran and Pat Antosh, U.S. Army (ret.). Addressing everything from sexual harassment in the military to concerns about higher education, the panel provided a wealth of information to program attendees.

The program was directed toward female soldiers looking to transition back into civilian life.
Women returning from war are not only faced with the challenges of the transition back to civilian life, but many suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, hypertension, and depression. One in five seen at VA medical centers indicated “yes” in screenings for military sexual trauma. Due to a combination of factors, female veterans have an increased risk of failure in the transition from military service to civilian life.

Many servicewomen at the event were seeking information about previous college credit transferability, credits for military courses, and accreditation of universities. Alston addressed the issue and advised servicewomen to demand a written agreement from their universities, stating that “XYZ University” will accept credits from “ABC University.” He noted that the new Joint Service Transcripts clearly spell out which military courses are recommended for university level credit. In addition, Alston explained regional and national accreditation, and that the service members need to be aware of which university falls under which accreditation. “The bottom line is that all credits should be accepted from either a nationally or regionally accredited university,” said Alston.

Legislation is being drafted to address this issue. Alston explained the foundation for the new legislation: “If the U.S. Government pays for our service members’ tuition to attend a private or public university, that institution has an ethical obligation to support the promise of recognizing the service members’ educational achievements. Plain and simple!”

The event included a networking luncheon at which Alston had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with attendees to answer questions regarding their personal educational needs.

California Miramar University was honored to a part of the Women in Transition Expo. For more information about the university, located at 9750 Miramar Road in San Diego, CA, visit www.calmu.edu or call 858-653-3000.
