Veterans Resource Centers On Campus: How to Create, Staff, & Fund a Thriving Center

January 25 2013 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Hardeman Student Services Center Room 206

A Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is a powerful way to assist those who defend our country and help them transition successfully to college once they return home. From applying for GI Bill benefits to veterans-only classes and veteran-to-veteran mentoring programs, a VRC plays an important role in the future of a community’s veteran population. 
This webinar will show you how to create a Veterans Resource Center (VRC) on your campus: how to staff it, how to get your local veteran community to help run it, and most importantly, how to fund it. We will show the financial and human impact that these centers have had on campuses and communities. We will provide data for over 11,000 student veterans on over 30 campuses on the impact of a VRC.

Speaker Information 


Dr. John Schupp founded the SERV Program, a two-semester program at Cleveland State University designed just for veterans. These two semesters are just what the veterans needed to increase the freshmen retention graduation rates. Under his direction, the program helps veterans apply for GI bill benefits and offers veterans-only classes that help ease the transition back into the classroom for many veterans who have not been in a classroom for years. He works with the veterans to navigate VA issues and offers a veteran-to-veteran mentoring program. The Sunday New York Times, National Public Radio, all the Armed Forces media, and the Chronicle of Higher Education have taken an interest in SERV. John Schupp loses no chance to spread the word at conferences and conventions around the country, as he continues to remind us of our responsibility to those who’ve served.
