President's One Main Message: Celebrating Veterans at UHD

Dear UHD Community,

Today is Veterans Day, and I’d like to thank UHD’s faculty, staff, and student veterans for their service to our country. Likewise, I’d like to extend my gratitude to the entire UHD Community for its support of veterans on campus.

Our institution has more than 700 student veterans who are assisted by UHD Veterans Services. This office helps former members of the military adapt to an academic environment by providing guidance with regards to admissions, registration, scholarships, financial aid and other university processes.
