About the VRC

Mission first, people always

As an Army Command Sergeant Major, my number one mission was people. That mission is no different here at the Veterans' Resource Center. VRC staff and I are here to help you make the most of your educational journey. If there is anything that the VRC can do to make the tools and opportunity to excel in your studies available, we are here to make it happen.
