Veterans Workgroup

The MUS Veterans Workgroup was developed to ensure the MUS continues to excel as a veteran friendly system by providing the services, financial aid, and instruction needed in order for today’s veterans to access and complete college. The goals of the group include:

  • Determine best practices to ensure we as a system are veteran friendly and provide the necessary services to veterans
  • Determine gaps in services or other areas that could be improved
  • Determine areas where a system or legislative initiative could assist in improving services, in filling gaps in services or improving consistency for veterans throughout the system
