Why you should attend?

UMA supports military and veterans with a full time Director in addition to the School Certifying Official. The Director is a single point of contact who is able to help navigate student veterans' transition into higher education. Building personal relationships between UMA and veterans is a significant factor in retention and success. UMA has designated physical space on campus; it is prime real estate, central to all foot traffic, and provides a safe space for military and veterans to build comradery on university grounds. Although a professional work space, the sense of community is felt by anyone who enters.
