Welcome to the University of Vermont. My name is David Carlson and I am the Coordinator of Student Veteran Services, a dedicated resource for student veterans on campus. I am a Marine, a former student veteran, and a staff member at UVM. My goal is to provide enrollment certification, support and encouragement for students using VA education benefits at UVM and to be a resource to help faculty and staff direct students to support and answer questions. If you are a prospective student, a student veteran, a dependent using VA education benefits, or a faculty or staff member working with student veterans, I am here for you.
This is an exciting time to be a student, especially a student veteran, in higher education. Thank you for your service and the sacrifice your family has made. Your education benefits are earned by virtue of your honorable service and are a very sincere thank you from a grateful nation. If you would like the ability to contribute to what is available for student veterans on campus I encourage you to stop by the Student Veteran Services office in Waterman 359 or email the student veterans organization at email@example.com.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to help you be successful - even if it's just grabbing a coffee and talking about options that are available to you. That's what I'm here for!

To spread awareness, assess and meet the unique needs and challenges of, coordinate resources for, and fill any service gaps of student veterans at UVM.
We believe that innovating new ways for veterans to transition from the military to higher education and beyond capitalizes on the diversity of their backgrounds and experiences and builds a stronger university, community and country. We do all of this by leveraging existing resources and implementing processes that ease access to Department of Veterans Affairs education benefits, increase awareness of military veterans on campus and focus on creating an inclusive environment for all students.
