On Veteran’s Day, November 11, TU will officially open a Veteran & Military Resource Center—a building dedicated to assist and support students and the community in successful navigation from military to academic life. A ribbon cutting will take place at 12:00 p.m., following TU’s traditional Veteran’s Day Service which begins at 11:00 a.m. in Chisholm Auditorium. The community is invited and encouraged to attend.
Victory Media named Tiffin University to its list of “Military Friendly School” in 2013–a list that honors the top 15 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country for doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as they transition to civilian life as students. According to Sean Collins, Director for G.I. Jobs and Vice President of Victory Media, “Tiffin University has a strong commitment to providing a supportive environment for military students.”
Today, Tiffin University serves 118 VA students who are in active duty and using federal tuition assistance. According to Annette Staunton, TU’s Executive Director for Veteran & Military Services, “This new Resource Center is dedicated to assisting and supporting students in receiving VA benefits and is proof of TU’s dedication to serving military personnel. This building will become a gathering place where current military students and community Veterans feel welcome.”
