My name is Chris James and I am the new advisor for the SVRC. I am a veteran of the US Navy where I worked as an Air Traffic controller. I was stationed at NAS Sigonella and with TACRON 21 in Virginia Beach. My goal is to be the ultimate resource for veteran related benefits. I am passionate about my job and continue to make sure veterans needs and concerns are addressed. I am an avid sports fan and spend most of my free time playing basketball.

Veteran Resource Coaches
 Made up of our own student veterans and supportive civillian students, they help run the SVRC and its programs. They are here to help students navigate the uncertainties of collegiate life and to steer their way to success. They can help with campus resources and support, or they can guide you to specific offices on campus.

They are here, Monday - Friday, from 8:00am to 5:00pm.

Veteran Coach

I have been working for the SVRC since spring 2019 and have really enjoyed my time here. I strive to keep up to date information available and a welcoming atmosphere at the SVRC. I have not served, but have a great respect for those that do. There is great honor in serving. In my free time I enjoy reading and working out. I am very active on campus and can be found studying during my off time at the SVRC.
