Soldier to Scholar Bridge Program

A summer bridge program for student veterans to study and discuss historical and literary treatments of World War I and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in relation to their own military experience.

The goal of the Soldier to Scholar bridge program is to provide access to war literature and film with historical national context to 15 incoming student veterans. Content will focus on WWI and on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. NEH Discussion Leaders will comprise ECU faculty from the humanities, two consultant Modernists and American literature scholars, and the assistant director of SVS. The program will take place Monday August 7, 2017, through Friday, August 18 and provide three humanities credits to the participants, who will be guided by faculty in daily discussions. Student veteran participants will analyze humanities texts in relation to their own military experience.
