Many Veterans enter college and university life directly out of the military. This is a significant life transition, and most people need time to adjust to the new setting, culture, and experiences of campus life. This transition is more difficult for some Veterans than for others. They may need more help with physical or mental health issues or with the practical aspects of transitioning to this new environment. That’s where VITAL can help.
The Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership (VITAL) program strives to enhance academic retention and success through:

Vital Visits are listed in our Upcoming Events.
Periodically throughout the semester, we will have Guest Speakers from the local community, companies, and more that will come by either earlier or later in the day to share their knowledge and experience. This differs from lunch and learns due to the fact that no food is provided and is typically after business hours.
This event is designed to connect our military veterans across generations. We invite our campus faculty veterans to connect with our student veterans and learn about what they're working on, accomplishing, and about ways to get involved.
Our student veterans will have the opportunity to learn from and connect with our faculty in an informal setting to learn about what they are a engaged with, and about the wider goings on in academia.
Food and drink will be served, along with some ice breaker games if so desired.
Our flagship event. We invite the campus community to come out and place flags into our Havener Lawn in commemoration and recognition of a veteran or service member in their life. We build a giant, visual, representation to show how many veterans and service members impact our lives. It's free to participate in.
