Military and Veteran Services Team
The Office of Military and Veteran Services and the Military and Veterans Success Center was established to provide a one-stop resource center for our active duty service members, veterans, and military dependents by providing personalized assistance and support to guarantee student success. Our mission is a presidential initiative and we focus on a triad of services to include education, mental wellness and jobs. UCM provides an exemplary education with award winning degree programs sought by employers. To address mental wellness, UCM has partnered with the Vet Center of Kansas City in order to provide weekly on-site individual therapy appointments and Veteran Peer Support Group sessions for our combat veterans. Veteran Service Officers are available on a weekly basis to assist veterans with questions pertaining to educational and health benefits as well as community resources. UCM's Office of Career Services partners with over 700 employers who visit campus annually for the student career fairs. UCM actively seeks out and identifies veteran supportive employers to assist our veterans in securing jobs following graduation.
Delilah Nichols, Coordinator, Military and Veteran Services
Welcome to the Office of Military and Veteran Services and the University of Central Missouri. In January 2011, President Chuck Ambrose appointed me to serve as staff liaison for our campus in assisting active duty military servicemembers, their spouses and dependents, and veteran students. I began my tenure at UCM on April 1, 1996 and have worked in the Office of the General Counsel and the Office of the President prior to this presidential appointment. I work directly with our combat veterans, the Vet Center of Kansas City, and with veteran service officers to assist our veterans in need of therapy and community resources. I also plan and execute all military and veteran-related ceremonies held on campus in addition to the day-to-day operations of the Military and Veterans Success Center. I look forward to serving as your point of contact and assisting you with your educational, campus, and community experiences.
On June 16, 2011, UCM's Board of Governors approved a Military Tuition Package to further assist our military service members, their families and veterans in pursuing their educational goals! On Veterans Day, 11/11/11, UCM dedicated its new Military and Veterans Success Center located in the Elliott Union, Room 117. The Center provides a location for our military and veteran students to study individually or as groups, access computer work stations with CAC readers, as well as direct access to dedicated staff to assist you with your needs. The UCM Student Veterans Organization provides an opportunity for student veterans to engage in campus activities and interact with like-minded individuals.
