What We Do

The MVCRC houses both the UAA Military &Veteran Student Services Assistant and the Department of Veterans Affairs' VetSuccess on Campus Counselor (VSOC). This partnership supports our military, veterans and family members through one-on-one coaching sessions, large scale briefings and workshops. We also strive to elevate the overall institutional understanding of the military and veteran student experience through in depth training opportunities for faculty, staff and students.
