We welcome military servicemembers and veterans!
At the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, we believe "military-friendly" refers to the faculty, staff, student government, and the general student population having an attitude of openness, care, and concern for both the academic success and emotional health for those who have served our country.
The Veteran Coordinator's main role is to explain educational benefit options, assist with the application for benefits, and to provide campus and community resource information that will contribute to the academic success and well-being of all military-affiliated students.
- Helps students navigate and understand the process of applying for Federal and State VA benefits
- Connects students with resources on campus and other student veterans
- Reaches out to faculty and staff on campus to support their efforts in serving our students
UWSP is committed to creating a welcoming environment for our student veterans. Our student veteran experience has been featured by Wisconsin Public Television as part of Veterans Coming Home, a national initiative that explores themes common to veterans reintegrating to civilian life to help bridge the military-civilian divide.
Our college community is becoming increasingly aware of the unique challenges facing student veterans in their difficult transition to civilian life. While the VA has developed some preventative measures over the last several years, we have still seen an increase in suicide and at-risk behavior among veterans.
To address this concern, faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to participate in an online training simulation that will help all of us to better support our student veterans. In this 30-minute course, you will learn about common transitional stressors that a student veteran may experience, what resources are available on-campus for student veterans, and how to help a student veteran who’s struggling.
