Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, is recognized as a center of excellence for veteran and military students among the nation's military services, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and institutions of higher education nationwide. The Office of Veteran and Military Programs and Services goals are to ensure veteran, military, and eligible family member students are fully integrated into campus life and are able to take full advantage of the broad range of intellectual and cultural activities offered by Rutgers while having them share their diverse experiences with the university community. Our team coordinates one of the most comprehensive range of services and programs for veteran, military, and eligible family member students in the country. Your academic success here at Rutgers and in your years beyond the university are very important to us, therefore; our primary missions are your smooth transition on to our campus, your academic success, and ultimately employment after graduation. As the result of Rutgers' extraordinary commitment to its veterans, active duty men and women, and eligible family members, the VA has designated Rutgers a VetSuccess On Campus University and assigned a fulltime VA employee, Valerie Williams, to work out of Rutgers' Veterans House on the College Avenue Campus in New Brunswick, NJ.
