Veterans' Consul

Veteran Consuls
Made up of our own student veterans and supportive university students, our veteran consuls 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. Here are just a few of their responsibilities:

  • Serve as a mentor to student veterans.
  • Provide knowledgeable information regarding campus resources and general information.
  • Assist student veterans with study skills.

Veteran Consuls are available, Monday - Friday, from 8:00 am to 4:30pm.
