The University of Hawaii is inviting nominations for a new task force that aims to improve support for student veterans.
UH Interim President David Lassner and U.S. Veterans Administration Secretary Eric Shinseki, a Kauai native and retired general, announced their plans to create the task force at a press conference last week.
The university enrolls more than 2,400 veterans total in its 10 campuses, or 4 percent of the entire student body.
Nominations should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The UH president will then appoint the task force.
