Frank discussed how SUNY Empire State College currently serves women veterans and led a breakout group where participants talked about educational opportunities for women veterans, as well as where there may be gaps and service issues as they transition back to civilian life.

The college is a sponsor of the yearly Wiawaka Women's Veteran Retreat and the education provider for the new women veterans’ shelter in Ballston Spa, N.Y.
