Gavilan Veterans Council


The Gavilan College Veterans Council was formed in Fall of 2011 for the purpose of promoting veterans and student veterans success. As a working sub-committee of the Learning Council, the group has been active helping to foster veterans awareness, working with the Student Veterans Club in an advisory role, and assisting with the Veterans Voices Project and Events.

The Council has been learning about the needs of student veterans by attending conferences and training classes, but most importantly by listening to our own student veteran's experiences on campus, both academically and socially. Using this information, the Council hopes to expand service and provide a positive campus climate for student veterans to achieve their academic pursuits.

Next Meeting: Mar. 21, 1200 - 1330, in MP 113
