Supporting Our Local Cedar City Veterans
The campus community at Southern Utah University appreciates the dedication and sacrifices of the men and women who serve and have served our great nation. The Veterans Resource and Support Center at SUU exists to retain and graduate veterans by delivering programs and services designed to support them as they pursue their educational goals leading to a productive and meaningful life.
The center is staffed with ten veterans: two full-time and eight part-time employees. Services provided through the center include: assistance in gaining and processing documentation necessary to attain veteran benefits, assistance connecting with mental health counselors, aid in preparing for and finding appropriate medical attention, academic advisement, free tutoring, free textbooks, moral support, and fellowship. The center staff is dedicated to helping fellow veterans succeed in their academic endeavors.
In celebration of Veteran’s Day there will be a special event on Friday, November 11 at 11 a.m. in the Hunter Conference Center. All community and campus members are invited and encouraged to attend the free event.
