New webpage organizes information on support, services for student veterans at UD

University of Delaware student veterans, current members of the military and those who support them now are able to visit the new Student Veterans and Service Members webpage on the University’s site.

Recognition of the need for such a webpage arose from discussions in the Campus Veterans Working Group, a team of staff members and students committed to more effectively serving these important members of the UD community, an effort organized by the Office of the Dean of Students.

This new site provides a one-stop landing page for students who have served in the military — and those who currently serve — at every step of their educational journey.

Links to key resources, many tailored specifically for those who serve, are gathered in one place, including information on navigating rules and regulations and links to information on academic, financial and personal support on campus, in the community and beyond.
These links are organized for quick retrieval of important information:

  • Applying to UD
  • Managing the transition to UD
  • Resources for Current Student Veterans
  • Resources for Faculty and Staff Supporting Student Veterans
  • Additional Resources for Veterans and their Families

With assistance from members of the Blue Hen Veterans registered student organization, members of the Campus Veterans Working Group developed the page, which was implemented by Jeff Chase, senior art director in Communications and Public Affairs.

“The initiation of the Student Veteran page signals the University’s strong commitment to the veterans in our midst and will assist the UD community in developing an ever-stronger support system for military veterans who join us as students,” a representative of the working group said.
