Veterans Student Success Team (VSST)

The Veterans Student Success Team (VSST) partners with the Veterans and Military Services Coordinator to understand the challenges facing student veterans on campus and identify institutional partnerships and strategies to resolve them.
Team members will leverage their expertise in areas, such as admissions, financial aid, academic advising, etc. to adjust service delivery and policy to accommodate veterans' needs. This group will meet once per month but schedule may vary depending on agenda and the state of veteran students on campus.
