To provide the highest quality service and support to Student Veterans, Service Members, and other military-affiliated students such as dependents, as outlined in the Veteran Administration's Principles of Excellence and 8 Keys of Success

As a service provider for military-affiliated and Veteran students, we endeavor to:

  • Be the primary go-to for any military-connected student using a military educational benefit or seeking support (academic, personal, or social)
  • Constantly remain vigilant in our mission to make UNH a military and Veteran friendly school
  • Ensure students and the Wildcat community will make us their first choice in learning about Military educational benefits as well as off-campus support programs and service
  • Create a space where student Veterans can connect with and develop lifelong bonds of friendship and camaraderie with other UNH student Veterans

As part of the UNH Department of Community, Equity, & Diversity, we value:

  • Fostering an empathetic office through active listening in order to provide the highest level of quality service and meet individual needs with respect and dignity
  • Networking with local, state, and federal organizations who may be able to assist, especially in a crisis
  • Maintaining the highest standards of professionalism, with an emphasis on ethical behavior and ensuring confidentiality
  • Cultivating a team dynamic that emphasizes effective, efficient, and transparent cooperation, collaboration, and communication

Furthermore, we strive every day to ensure that we exceed the University's inclusivity standards as laid out by the University Commission on Community, Equity, and Diversity, which can be found here.

In order to achieve our mission and fulfill our vision in accordance with our values, our services include:

  • Processing military educational benefits in an accurate, efficient, and timely manner in accordance with federal and state law, VA regulations, and USNH Board of Trustees policy
  • Providing a comfortable space for student Veterans, Service Members, and other military-affiliated students to study and socialize, to include Veteran-only on-campus housing
  • Supporting the UNH Student Armed Forces Association, the primary student organization for student Veterans, Service Members, and other military-affiliated students
  • Coordinating a wide range of events for our students, including:
  • Veteran-specific informational sessions for opportunities such as the Fulbright program
  • Veteran-specific orientation for incoming Veterans and members of the National Guard or Reserves
