Veteran services

Our Mission

On campus, and worldwide, we’re committed to supporting military, military veterans, military spouses, and dependent children in the areas of higher education in outreach/admission, GI Bill benefits, academic success, graduation, and a career. We exist to be the best in these areas in the eyes of our student-veterans, staff, alumni, and donors.
