The University of Hawaii is forming a task force to improve services for military veterans.
The university said Friday it wants the task force to help different campuses within the university system to learn from each other's successes.
Task Force results and recommendations will be shared at a systemwide conference at Manoa next spring.
The 15-member group may work with veteran students and recent veteran graduates to understand what barriers they have faced and what contributed to their success.
They may also identify federal policy changes that would help student veterans. They may also make recommendations to federal officials and Hawaii's congressional delegation.
The task force is chaired by Chris Manaseri, Dean of Student Services at Leeward Community College.
