Veterans Resource Center

Our Mission

The Veterans' Resource Center is a place where people can receive information about educational benefits.  While it is open to anyone, typically, student veterans and/or offspring of veterans can be found in the Center and are willing to offer assistance and support for students who are making the transition to college from the military.  The Center has a computer for student use and a comfortable environment for socializing with other veterans.  Bulletin boards outside of the Center are maintained by officers in the UW-Waukesha Student Veterans Association who post current news articles and notices from County and State Veteran offices.
