Mission and Vision Statement
The Office of Veterans Affairs aims to serve those who have so selflessly served our nation as members of the armed forces. We recruit, prepare and support active, reserve and veteran students and help navigate the collegiate journey. While recruitment and retention of veteran students are important goals, the Office of Veterans Affairs primarily focuses on ensuring the success of students.
