Texas Tech Promotes Itself as Military-Friendly Institution
Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are returning civilian life. Some are going to college. As a result, Texas Tech is reaching out to those veterans.
The program is called MVP – Military and Veterans Program. According to an article on Tech’s website, the program has become a staple at the university after just 18 months. Ryan Van Dusen,the assistant director of MVP, describes the program this way:
“We are here to make sure students and their families achieve academic and personal success. It gives veterans a primary point of contact on campus. We make sure to get them the right resources on campus…and help them get pointed in the right direction.”
