About UNA Military and Veteran Affairs
The effort for establishing an Office of Military and Veteran Affairs and a Military and Veteran Support Center here at UNA began in 2011 when I realized that no single office or entity within the UNA administration specifically had the responsibility for military and Veteran students. All of the various offices at UNA provide great service to all students including military and Veteran students, but there was no "Point-Man" (to use an Army term) or single source of advocacy for military and Veteran students. So we began the effort to explore establishing the Office of Military and Veteran Affairs. With the support of the President and the Vice President of Academic Affairs and Provost, we have been working on this effort and are getting closer each day to the realization of having a staffed and fully functioning Military and Veteran support center on campus with the commitment of both the Vice Presidents for Academic Affairs and Student Affairs personally committed to the effort and the Student Government Association allocating $25K in support of the center. If you are a military or Veteran student I encourage you to get involved and let your voice be heard.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or suggestions regarding Military and Veteran Affairs. - WPB
