Veterans Resource Office

Student walking into AULA veterans resources officeA Veterans Resource Office (VRO) has just been established on the Antioch campus. The office will serve veterans and other military-connected students as a resource to support their educational goals and professional success. The VRO plans to additionally provide opportunities for peer-to-peer academic support, wellness, mentoring, and social networking.

“I am appreciative of any veteran support in any institution,” said Kyra Davenport a member of the U.S. Army for twelve years and now a student in the MFA in Creative Writing program. “I am impressed with the innovation the university is demonstrating through the establishment of the VRO. I look forward to using it as a resource to discover benefits I wasn’t otherwise aware of and as a place to bond with other veterans.”

As participants in the Post-9/11 GI Education Enhancement Program, also known as the Yellow Ribbon Program, AULA has fostered an environment that is financially supportive of veteran’s continuing education. The Yellow Ribbon Program allows institutions of higher education to partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs to fund tuition expenses for eligible veterans. Participating schools contribute up to 50% of tuition expenses, which the VA matches.

AULA held a mixer in recognition of the establishment of the Veterans Resource Office on January 17th.

The Veterans Resource Office is located in room A1003 on the first floor. The hours of operation are Monday and Tuesday 8:30 to 4:00 and Wednesday from 8:30 to 1:00.
