The first meeting of the newly formed Veterans Committee of the Hudson Valley Consortium for Higher Education will take place this month on the SUNY New Paltz campus.
The Veterans Committee of the Hudson Valley Consortium for Higher Education will bring together veterans services representatives from nearly every university in the Hudson Valley. In addition to SUNY New Paltz, confirmed attendees for the July 25 meeting include representatives from Marist College; Vassar College; Mount St. Mary College; and Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, and Columbia-Greene community colleges, among others.
"Our No. 1 goal is to be advocates in the best interest of the veteran student, military student, or dependent student," said SUNY New Paltz Veterans Service Coordinator Jason Gilliland.
