DeVry adds resources to aid veteran students

DeVry University on July 6 unveiled its Veterans Resource Room at its campus in Phoenix, located at 2149 W. Dunlap Ave. The resource room on the second floor, which will become the newly dedicated space for military and veteran students, will provide an opportunity for military students—whether active-duty or veterans—to connect with each other, network, and obtain the resources, support and advocacy needed to succeed in college.

Resources and ongoing workshops will be offered to encourage these students to develop their leadership style, implement new ideas, develop strong organizational skills and collaborate with fellow students and staff.

“DeVry University is committed to providing the necessary support and resources these students need to be successful in their academic career,” said Greg Pace, national director, Military and Veterans Affairs. “We will continue to identify the specific needs of our military students to assist them in achieving their educational goals.”

For more than 80 years, DeVry University has helped military members, veterans and their families achieve their career goals through education—from training Army Air Corps instructors on electronic devices in the 1940s to being one of the first schools approved to accept the original GI Bill after World War II.
