For Faculty and Staff
Veterans bring unique experiences and a special set of challenges to their university experience. USU is now serving approximately 450 veteran students. We anticipate that there will be a gradual increase in the number of veterans who will be using their veteran's education benefits and enrolling at USU on-campus and distance education programs. These students are male and female, traditional college age and nontraditional. Regardless of how these students "look", their experience as a veteran makes them different in many ways.
Please take a few moments to read through the information on this site to learn how you can create a welcoming environment for student veterans. With any unique student group, there are questions that you should ask and some that you should not. Please take the time to find out more.
Please do not hesitate to contact the programs listed below if you have questions related to serving veterans in your classes. The veterans Resource Office is available to meet with departments or individuals to discuss the needs of students.
