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
