Veterans office at UAF

Question

I would like to know who oversees the VA office on campus. Do they work for VA or UAF? I feel like the office is not very professional.  It is dirty and constantly has people hanging out in there and I am not comfortable coming in asking questions that everyone will hear.  I am very much concerned about confidentiality. Please let me know who I need to address this with.

Response

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The office is a partnership between the Vietnam Veterans of America, the Alaska Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and UAF to better serve our veterans and their dependents.  We’re aware that this is not the ideal space for our students to bring confidential concerns. Feel free to contact me with any additional concerns.
