We are thrilled to announce the creation of the Office of Student Veteran Life here at the UW! Student Veteran Life was created to meet the programming and academic needs of student veterans, and to act as a supportive community for both current military members and veterans. Along with that, the office’s major priorities for this year include increased communication, becoming a “veteran-supportive” campus, educational opportunities for UW faculty and staff, data collection and changing the focus from primarily recruiting members to retaining student veterans. Additionally, offering constructive workshops and inclusive events helps build community and provides opportunities for student veterans to gain skills academically and socially. This preparation for the future is crucial to empowering student veterans.
