Herzing University, a Milwaukee-based accredited, private nonprofit institution, today announced a further demonstration of its commitment to supporting military students and veterans with the awarding of a federal U.S. DOE grant for the development of additional veteran-related resources.
The grant, $600,000 to be funded over three years, will allow Herzing to develop a dedicated Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success (CEVSS) to help expand the institution’s ongoing goals of providing valuable resources and opportunities for veterans to both reenter the civilian workforce and locate specialized support services to help them transition back to post-military life.
This new program will allow veterans to not only transition into their new life, but also thrive in it.
“At Herzing University, we recognize that a veteran’s move to a full-time civilian career can be especially difficult. Many of these heroes are equipped with high-level soft skills like communication, teamwork, and discipline but they also often require additional support and specialized resources,” said Renee Herzing, President of Herzing University. “This new program will allow veterans to not only transition into their new life, but also thrive in it. We hope that through the CEVSS program, we can improve our overall services for veteran students, and better engage in recruiting activities to attract more veteran students to Herzing.”
Currently, 380 veteran students are enrolled in Herzing programs across the country, including 327 veteran students enrolled in an online/hybrid modality, as well as 56 veteran students living within commuting distance of the University’s Kenosha, Wisconsin campus.
