  • Provide advice and consultation on how to make Stockton College a more “veteran and military friendly” school.
  • Provide advice and consultation on how to incorporate the local community to participate and support Stockton veteran programs.
  • Provide advice and consultation on how to reach out to the local and state-wide military organizations to participate and support Stockton veteran programs.

Overall, create a supportive campus atmosphere and make available comprehensive services so that veterans can have a successful academic experience and college life at Stockton.
