University Outreach Addresses Challenges

The University has launched a new outreach program to address the unique challenges student veterans face.

Jason Sakowski, veteran services coordinator, and Nick Osborne, director of the Center for Wounded Veterans, reached out to all the community colleges in the state to recruit veteran transfer students.

“99 percent of our (veteran) students are actually transfer students from other community colleges,” Sakowski said. “A lot of our students are getting out and starting at community college and then learning what they want to do.”
