Is the Veterans Center moving to a new location?

Question

Is the Veterans Center moving to a new location?

What is UAF doing to support the needs of student veterans?

Why did the Veterans Service office leave campus so abruptly? Will the new office eventually have more staffing? Is there any chance of getting a dedicated advisor for our veteran students?

Response

The UAF Student Veterans Resource Center is still in Room 111 of the Eielson Building, but it has new office hours: Tuesday through Thursday10 a.m. to 2 p.m. During office hours, UAF student services staff can answer questions and provide information about financial aid, admissions and registration, advising, and other campus resources for veterans and military students and dependents.

The Vietnam Veterans of America previously had an employee who also worked out of that office, but that position now works out of the Alaska National Guard recruiting office. The university will continue to meet with staff, faculty and students throughout the fall semester to explore options for increasing services to student veterans in the future.
