Our institution is more dedicated than ever to helping military-affiliated students thrive on campus and in the community. This dedication begins during their transition from service to education and lasts through to graduation and entering the workforce. The recent addition of a new veteran-focused position, the Student Veteran Services Coordinator, provides Appalachian with an opportunity to implement and maintain new programs and services for our growing population of student veterans.In August, 2016, our Chancellor announced the designation of space in our student union for a Student Veteran Resource Center, further evidence of our support for this population.
