Veteran Center staffSouthern Utah University’s Veterans Resource and Support Center’s work is concerned with retaining and helping graduate military-connected students by running programs and services designed to recruit, retain, and support military-connected students as they pursue their educational goals and the achievement of skills needed to lead productive and meaningful lives. 

The term “military-connected students” includes military veterans, active-duty military personnel, reservists, guard or dependents who may be utilizing the educational benefits of a member of the armed forces.

Located in the Sharwan Smith Student Center, the Veterans Center offers a space to relax, get some coffee, or playing Xbox, not only to veterans and military-connected students but any other T-Bird interested to go in and know more about the Center’s work.

Every month, the Veterans Resource and Support Center honors a military-connected student with the objective of bringing more awareness to the lives of veterans and distinguish those who are outstanding on their academic performance. Also, every year, the Veterans Resource and Support Center hosts annual Veterans Day Observance Ceremony on Veterans’ Day. 

The team at the Veterans Resource and Support Center includes the Director of Veteran Services Amanda Keller, School Certifying Official Jeffrey Hunt, Veterans Success Specialist Amy Ellington and the Veteran Student Liaison Team composed by Dakota DiGuardi, Ricardo Bastidas, Cristian Morales, Tony Ochsner and Kodey Anthony. Also, for those students looking for jobs on campus, students don’t have to be military-connected in order to work in the Center. 

In order to reach out to the staff, students can stop by Room 113 in the Sharwan Smith Student Center, contact the email veterans@suu.edu, or call (435) 865-8477.
