A group of thirty incoming spring 2014 freshman and transfer student veterans gathered Wednesday, January 15 for a veterans orientation hosted at CUNY’s Central Office 42nd street location. The orientation, a collaborative effort between the Central Office for Veterans’ Affairs and Admissions brought together other university subject matter experts from the areas of Career Services, Financial Aid, Disability Services/LEADS (Linking Education Academics and Disability Services), Transfer Credits, and the CUNY Project for the Return and Opportunity in Veterans Education (PROVE). Panelists presented, relevant university information was imparted, and questions were answered during this welcoming effort to assist veterans to enroll, register and transition into university life.
The CUNY Central Office for Veterans’ Affairs (COVA) is committed to advancing veterans, reservists, military personnel and their families into the future. The office provides dedicated assistance in the transition from military life to academic life and on to careers. COVA leads and directs the planning, development and implementation of university-wide, veteran-focused co-curricular and extra-curricular programs in partnership with the university, 24 campus sites, community-based organizations and the private sector. In addition, COVA partners with national, state and local veterans’ agencies to develop programs and services and implement policies and procedures to effectively serve the CUNY veteran community.
