Delaware Tech Receives $500 Donation to Support Veteran Resource Center
Georgetown – Delaware Tech recently received a $500 donation to support the creation of a Veteran Resource Center at the Owens Campus.
The Center will host guest speakers and student veteran programs such as financial education, tutoring, career workshops, and post-traumatic stress seminars. It will also provide a meeting space for student veterans to study, relax, and engage with fellow veterans, as well as a location for the Veterans Inspiring Progress (VIP) student organization, which offers support and networking for the campus veteran community.
Delaware Tech recognizes the sacrifices of those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. The College offers a variety of veteran-friendly services and assists student veterans in achieving their educational goals. In recognition of these ongoing efforts, Delaware Tech was honored to receive the Military Friendly School Award for the past three years, an award presented by Victory Media to the top 15 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools in the country that embrace military students and provide dedicated resources to ensure their success in the classroom and after graduation.
The Veteran Resource Center is expected to be completed in late spring 2017 in the Student Services Center.
If you’d like to donate to support this project, please contact Jason Bentley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 302-259-6024.
