Texas A&M University has served student veterans since 1919 and is a national leader in service to our student veterans, active duty, military dependents, and survivors. In 1946, student veterans comprised 73% of the total enrollment. To better serve Post-9/11 veterans, Texas A&M University opened the Veteran Resource & Support Center. In partnership with the existing Veteran Services Office, both offices create fantastic opportunities for student veteran success!
The Don & Ellie Knauss Veteran Resource & Support Center (VRSC) identifies, develops, and provides uniquely tailored services that enhance academic success and holistic development of Veterans & Military-Affiliated students (Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, Military Families, and Survivors). The VRSC facilitates the Veteran & Military-Affiliated transitions by integrating the Aggie Core Values with the foundational VRSC philosophy of Serve Well Those Who Have Served.
The VRSC will be the national leader for the development and implementation of best practices that enhance Veteran & Military-Affiliated student success. The VRSC will efficiently maximize support by designing unique, purposeful, and intentional services that ensure academic and holistic transition from “application to vocation.” As a focal point for Veteran & Military-Affiliated student transition programs and services, the VRSC will emphasize innovative collaboration to engage others who are committed to raising awareness and success of these students.
