The Office of Student Veteran Engagement (OSVE) supports veteran students in a variety of ways. From bolstering the efforts of veteran student organizations, connecting veterans with resources on and off-campus to helping with applications, GI bill benefits, transferability of courses and other support services. The staff assist in finding internship and employment opportunities, as well as, coordinate initiatives across all schools and programs, work to expand veteran enrollment, and seek support for those and other university veteran programs.
Recent successes such as expanding enrollment in student veteran organizations, conducting Green Zone training for staff and faculty to improve understanding of veteran issues, the identification of scholarship and internship opportunities and coordination of university-wide Veterans Day activities have all been achieved by volunteers. The Office converted those initial volunteer efforts into a coordinated, sustained campaign to make William & Mary truly veteran-friendly and a model for other universities.
