The KU Student Veteran Center will be the focal point for KU's vision to serve as a leading university in the nation for comprehensive student veteran programming. The center and its staff will develop and sustain programming for the four phases of the student veteran: recruitment, admissions and first-year experience, persistence to degree, and career services.
