California State University faculty and their supporters from across the state are gearing up to protest the CSU
Trustees meeting in Long Beach next week. The faculty union, representing teachers, librarians, and counselors,
has already authorized a strike if ongoing contract negotiations fail. Salary is the main point of contention; CSU
has offered a 2 percent raise but faculty want 5 percent. A strike would impact over 450,000 students.
On this Veterans Day, we'll discuss the sometimes difficult
transition veterans face when they move from from military
service to college. Many veterans use their GI benefits to gain
access to higher education, but studies show student veterans
face challenges other than financial ones -- challenges such as
adjusting to civilian life and isolation. We're joined by several
veterans and some of those helping them with the transition from
combat to college.
