This coalition of students serves as an advocate for student veterans, current service members, and their family members while attending IU East and develops a support network for camaraderie among them.
Although designed for student service members, no IU East student, with a desire to support those who serve, will be excluded. Objectives include:
- Provide information about academic, financial, and personal resources available on campus and in the Community
- Develop a support network for camaraderie among Veterans
- Provide leadership for campus events
- Develop a timeline for submission of required documentation related to veterans benefits
- Be a resource for students considering military service
