Why you should attend?

UNM's greatest asset for veterans, military service members, and their families is our centrally located Veterans Resource Center (VRC).

The VRC has a Student Success Specialist, two VA School Certifying Officials, a VetSuccess on Campus Counselor, a Program Coordinator for Academic Success, and a Veterans Alumni Chapter.
