The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) at Foothill College is a centralized resource hub, easily accessible and widely available to all veterans and their families. The Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS) and High Tech Center Training Unit (HTCTU) has launched a pilot program that will serve as a model for campuses in meeting the needs of an increasing number of returning veterans for a successful transition to academic life. Our goal is to ensure that veterans achieve their educational and career goals in a supportive environment with adequate and appropriate resources and support staff.
The center will provide veterans the essential components in assessment and screening, general academic support services, peer counseling, culturally relevant support programs, outreach, student clubs, wellness or access to training in assistive computer technology. Training will include learning styles for non-traditional learners, sensitivity training regarding veterans' issues, or civil rights training for vets.
Veterans can take advantage of other services, which include:
The Veterans Resource Team is made up of dedicated professionals who have an interest in veteran's success. The Team is comprised of professionals from several departments across campus, all with the common goal of helping our veterans accomplish their academic mission.
