We honor all veterans on this day, especially the students, faculty, and staff who are part of our community who are veterans or family members of veterans. A quick glance at the NDNU website shows an array of resources available and today is a great opportunity to honor veterans by highlighting these services:
- Admissions offers information about applying for programs across the university.
- The Student Services tab at the NDNU website shares several useful links, to the Veteran’s Administration, to services for returning vets, and to local VA facilities.
- In addition, NDNU has a Veteran’s Club, which promotes as its mission the intent to “provide support for Veterans to succeed in higher education and achieve their academic goals.” For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Our students provide support too! Check out this article, written as part of Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In” series that profiles women who make a difference as Human Services student Maria Sanchez shares the story that inspired her to start a group that supports veteran families. Called Military Esposa, it contains practical information and inspiration that sustains.
Finally, this is also a great opportunity to honor again student Sheila Aube, who received an award from the California State Assembly last summer for her service. We are so impressed!
Our gratitude for all who have served and the families who have made such great sacrifices.
