CHENEY, Wash. - As part of its goal to ensure Eastern Washington University will meet the needs of the thousands of service men and women returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan, EWU has officially opened its new Veterans Resource Center.

Just four months after announcing the creation of the center, Eastern President Rodolfo Arévalo gathered with university leaders and community supporters who made the project possible to get a sneak peek at the facility.

The 2,000 square-foot center includes a lounge, kitchen area, computer lab, conference and workshop space as well as office space for support staff. The center will provide critical services and resources veterans will need as they integrate back into civilian life and learn to navigate the university system. There are currently more than 500 veterans enrolled at EWU, and the university expects to see a 10 percent increase annually in the number of veterans seeking college degrees and utilizing GI benefits.

Eastern has named M. David Millet as director of the Veterans Resource Center. A Lieutenant Colonel (Retired), Millet has more than 25 years of success in increasingly demanding leadership and management positions within the U.S. Army and at Eastern Washington University, with significant experience in management, strategic planning, fundraising and program assessment. In addition to Millet, staffing includes a recruiter/advisor, a GI benefits coordinator, graduate assistants, a VetCorps representative and faculty liaisons.

In addition to the strong program on campus, the center will develop a robust online presence to reach individuals even while they are still on active duty. The center is located on the first floor of Showalter Hall.
