(2)

Online meetings are available. Use the form at https://www.umflint.edu/svrc. Our philosophy is one of respect, appreciation, inclusiveness, and recognition that veterans have concerns and experiences that differ from those of typical college student. The Student Veterans Resource Center, located in 131 University Pavilion, provides services for service members and veterans, as well as their spouses and dependents. Our staff is available to assist with academic, financial, and transition support services, including information regarding use of VA Educational Benefits. We have a wide network both on and off campus for referrals to a wide variety of services and programs. In addition to our services, we also have a student veterans lounge. The lounge area is home to three computer stations and printer, and space to study and socialize while on campus. Services include:
• Assistance with the admission application process
• Review of military transfer credit recommendations
• Information about using financial aid
• Assistance using VA Educational Benefits or Tuition Assistance programs
• Scholarship opportunities
• Support to student veterans organizations and community involvement

Veterans Week 2020 | University of Michigan Veteran and Military Services Program

The University of Michigan Veterans Week activities are still taking place! Right now, we are discussing the documentary "The Weight of Honor" which features caregivers of military veterans.

You can download the documentary at no cost from the UM library using your UM login credentials.

At 2pm today, there is a discussion about VA healthcare and benefits. At 3pm, we will be discussing "DEI in the Military," and at 4:30pm, we'll talk about "Diversity in the Military."

On Friday at 12 noon, there will be a panel about "Women in the Military" and at 2pm, a discussion about "Sexual Harassment in the Military" (please see the overview on the above website before viewing).
