Veterans are the heart of the Union Institute & University Veterans in Union program. This Veterans Day, November 11, Union will celebrate veterans by providing lunch at The Joseph House for Homeless Veterans, and bringing cookies to 15 veteran partnership organizations during the week.
“Veterans Day provides another opportunity for Union to recognize and honor the sacrifices of veterans,” said Nicole Schreck, Senior Director of Enrollment. “It is our honor to bring lunch to the staff and veterans of Joseph House. The programs offered through Joseph House, are extremely valuable to the veterans within our community. These programs empower and transform the lives of those veterans who may have found themselves lost in their transition from the military to civilian role.”
The Veterans in Union stipend program provides a three-term $7500 living allowance stipend for eligible Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana veterans to earn or complete their undergraduate or graduate degree.
The Veterans in Union program holds the designation of a Yellow Ribbon university, is in the Top 25 percent ranking of Military Friendly Institutions, and accepts previous credits and experience including ACE Credits, Dantes, CLEP, and more. In addition, Union is listed on the U.S. Department of Education’ Eight Keys to Veterans’ Success site; and is part of a very critical two-year independently funded agreement with the Cincinnati Veterans Affairs office for on-site VITAL counseling services.
Nicole Schreck and Geri Maples deliver cookies to the Tri-State Veterans Community Alliance in recognition of Veterans Day.
