Regional Military Points of Contact

To help promote the communication and collaboration of military and veterans' initiatives across the college, the various regions have appointed military points of contact for each center.

The regional military points of contact will act as liaisons, providing center and unit information, ideas and concerns to the Office of Veteran and Military Education, as well as distributing information from OVME to the appropriate personnel at their centers and units.

Feel free to send your ideas, questions, or concerns related to veteran and military education processes and initiatives to your center military point of contact (CMPC).
