Student Veterans Resource Center Team

The Student Veteran Resource Team’s Transition and Readiness Coaching programs are commendable examples of delivering programs that address the current and emerging student profile. After identifying the challenges that student veterans face during their transition to UGA and post-graduation, the SVRC Team designed the coaching programs to actively engage student veterans in co-curricular learning activities that posture them for a purposeful UGA experience and for success following graduation.
