Veterans Services

Veterans Resource Center

The Veterans Resource Center provides a comfortable space for socializing with other veterans. At Washington County, the center is in Room 203. At Waukesha, the center is in Room C136 (use the hallway between the Diversity Center and ACT office).

Veterans and families of veterans can get answers to questions that help with the transition from military to college life and receive access to a stable support network in any time of need.

Student Veterans Association

Both UWM at Washington County and UWM at Waukesha have active Student Veteran Associations (SVA). The SVA is a group of college-based military veterans and supporters dedicated to providing military veterans with the resources, support and advocacy needed to succeed in college and after graduation. They do this by distributing useful information and promoting healthy interactions, both on and off campus, through social gatherings. They also provide special services to assist disabled veterans.

Each club meets regularly to determine what events it would like to participate in or sponsor. Typically, these include a Veterans Day ceremony and a May Day dinner, as well as flag ceremonies and various veteran outreach activities. They also educate the college community about the special experiences, circumstances, strengths and needs of military veterans and their families.
