Veteran Support Renewed

Published: May 28, 2015

CHENEY, Washington - Eastern Washington University President Mary Cullinan and Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs (WSDVA) Director Alfie Alvarado-Ramos have put their signatures on the "Partners for Veteran Supportive Campuses" certificate. The signing ceremony took place on Thursday, May 28, during EWU's Veterans Resource Fair.

This memorandum of understanding (MOU) was last signed April 15, 2010. However, with new leadership at both Eastern and the WSDVA this was an opportunity to reconfirm the university's commitment to supporting the more than 600 veterans, service members and their families on campus.

The purpose of this certificate is to strengthen EWU's partnership on behalf of Washington's Governor between the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Washington Student Achievement Council and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.

These Partners seek to increase awareness of veterans' programs on and off campus to support veteran success, encourage veterans to use GI Bill benefits and help them succeed in post-secondary education and training.

Through the MOU, Eastern will continue to implement best practices and policies designed to foster social support, acceptance, a welcoming environment and a setting that meaningfully acknowledges the contributions of our veterans.

Eastern has received the GI Jobs Military Friendly School recognition five straight years, putting it in the top 15 percent of colleges in the nation in service to student veterans. And in 2012, the university opened the Veterans Resource Center to provide student veteran support services.
