VETS incorporates academics, institutional access, student involvement and research, not only to support the success of enrolled student veterans, but to understand their experiences more authentically and maintain a program that is effective and dynamic.

The numbers of veterans enrolling in higher education over the last few years has increased significantly. This trend holds true here at the University of Arizona. As higher education prepares nationally for this influx of student veterans, the UA is committed to supporting their success and to helping create a national climate for veterans in higher education that is inclusive of their unique talents and experiences.

Learn more about the history of the VETS program at the University of Arizona and read a message from former UA president Robert Shelton.
