Expanding Our Efforts
Throughout the pandemic, University Veteran Services has extended even more support to veteran students through increased programming and campus engagement. The goal of the work of UVS remains the same: serving military-connected students throughout their entire university experience, from pre-application to post-graduation.
University Veteran Services continues to work to expand and improve upon these efforts through new and broadened initiatives including a peer support mentoring program, a series of monthly “lunch and learn” informational sessions, and a drop-in monthly club for women veterans. Additionally, at the start of each school year will be another student veteran resource fair and lunch, which was used to help engage students with their community prior to the pandemic. The resource fair combines local and campus resources to highlight the commitment among students and volunteers to help build and support the student veteran community on campus.
University Veteran Services’ primary objective is to provide a supportive community for veteran-connected students at UW-Madison. With the return of in-person events, UVS will strive to meet the goal of their mission: to connect student veterans to their greater campus community. Going forward, University Veteran Services will continue to make a difference and stay proactive in addressing the needs of veterans.
