Our mission is to provide, facilitate, or coordinate programs to meet the needs of veterans, service members, dependents, and survivors of veterans in order to ease the transition to college life and fulfill their educational goals.
The office is staffed with qualified counselors who provide a broad range of services; provide general and specific information about all benefits available to men and women who are serving or who have served in the armed forces; report enrollment information to authorize appropriate allowances; provide other advisory counseling and referral services; assist in resolving problems that may arise in the student's relations with the University and/or the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA); foster peer connections; and coordinate university and community support.
