Military and Veterans Committee

Charge

The Military and Veterans Committee serves as an advisory committee to University leaders concerning issues and programming related to the military and veteran’s community at the University of Missouri. The Committee develops recommendations for ways to positively improve the educational, family, health, and career support to the University military and veterans community based upon dialogue between departments within the University, state and federal organizations and agencies, and the surrounding business community. The Committee works to create awareness of the issues faced by this population, recommends the development of programs to support veterans and family members, helps connect students, faculty, staff, and alumni to events and organizations related to veterans issues, identifies opportunities to connect the University’s research and engagement mission with veteran and military issues, and provides a forum to University military and veterans for feedback on issues that affect their lives.
