Embrace Diversity and Veterans

Renovate VSS Space to Address the Needs of Veteran Students

Expand support services to our veteran students. In the first two months of Fall 2013, VSS has had 2147 visits to the office seeking services. This represents a 40% increase over the same timeframe last year (we have not calculated unique student visits but anticipate the numbers will also reflect an increase over the previous year). With new space and expanded outreach, we expect an increase of individual utilization by 100 students and overall utilization by 50%. Establishment of a new stand‐alone department, Veteran Student Services (VSS), to serve the growing veteran population at CSUF.
