Morgan has not only been designated by Victory Media as "a military friendly university" for 2016, 2017 and 2018, but we also want to build our reputation as a place where veterans and their academic and social needs are taken care of. As part of our on-going initiative to provide a well-rounded benefit for veteran students, our future goals are to develop an on-campus veterans club, create an environment of sensitivity and understanding of veterans needs and publicize veterans resources.
Some of the endeavors that we have currently implemented specifically for veteran students on campus include:
Veterans Orientation Day
To provide veterans benefit and resource information to incoming and continuing student veterans, their spouses and dependents. Acclimation to on-campus services, programs, curriculums and community development projects.
Veterans Priority Registration
Designed to give veteran students the opportunity to organize their program's curriculum to ensure that they are on track and graduate on time
Military Appreciation Day
Designed to acknowledge all veterans around the State of Maryland for their services to the nation and our community. We place a specific emphasis on our Morgan student veteran population and their families. It's celebrated around the Veterans Day holiday and we invite distinguished veteran contributors to share in the festivities as we honor them with Morgan memorabilia.
Scholarship and Hiring Fair Event
Identify funding and administer scholarship program information, as well as updated access to employment opportunities for all student veterans and their dependents.
Ice Cream Social
Specifically for student veterans and their family members; to notify veterans twice a semester of important University information
Distance Learning/Distance Education
Assist with enrolling students in workforce training and development opportunities to advance their career.
