UNLV’s Military and Veterans Support Center recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary.
The center supports student-veterans, students in the military and dependents of military personnel and veterans.
It does so by helping them enroll in classes, ensuring that they receive military benefits toward their tuition and connecting with other resources on campus that they may need such as mental health services, mentorship programs and health insurance aid, among other resources.
The center started out as a student veteran organization, according to a recent UNLV news release.
The student organization became the service center now featured on campus on Oct. 24, 2012, according to the center’s website.
UNLV’s student-veteran population currently has about a 70% graduation rate, with 1,600 of those students currently attending classes, according to the university.
More information on the Military and Veterans Support Center and other resources for student-veterans can be found on the center’s website.
