Haas Center 

A View of the Veteran and Defense Workforce in NWFL

The Haas Center is continuing its "Citizen Economist" community engagement series with a demographic overview of Northwest Florida's veterans and defense workforce. The Haas Center will be joined by Chris Middleton, who serves as UWF President Martha Saunders' military liaison as well as director of strategic innovation for the Division of Research and Strategic Innovation. In addition, Bob Foster of the Military Veterans Resource Center will be a part of the program as well to share highlights from the Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program. 

Data points covered include an overall demographic profile of veterans, unemployment of veterans, veteran-owned businesses, and the skill sets of separating military and recent veterans.
