Veterans Community Partners Team (VCP)

The Veterans Community Partners will work in conjunction with the University of Memphis, Veterans & Military Student Services Department (VMSS) to provide an on-site service delivery model that supports veterans and military students with their transition from military to university life and beyond.

The goal of the Veterans Community Partner Initiative is to increase awareness and accessibility to a variety of veteran and military support services. The community partner agencies and select UofM departments will be available to help veterans and military students leverage support resources in areas such as health, disability claims, housing, VA education benefits, etc. at the VMSS Center.
