History

The committee was appointed in fall 2009 by Vice President for Student Affairs Terry Hogan to conduct initial assessment of needs of veteran students and to provide coordination of existing services. Dan Schofield of Admissions was initial chair. In fall 2011, Assistant Registrar Jennifer Suchan was assigned to coordinate veterans students services and the charge to the committee was refined.
