Last Friday, September 28th, Evergreen’s Vice President for Student Affairs, Art Costantino, and Veteran’s Affairs Coordinator, Tyrone Newton, presented to the House Higher Education Committee during a work session looking at veteran services at our colleges and universities.
Touting Evergreen’s exceptional services and programming, the two joined a panel of other 2 and 4 year college representatives. Costantino and Newton spoke on the various services, programs and financial resources available to veterans and their dependents on campus. Among the notable programs and approaches mentioned were; our unique, holistic advising system; partnerships with other veteran organizations; specialized mental health services; and specific academic programming geared toward veteran’s needs. A former student, current employee and veteran, Newton described why he chose Evergreen, and the assistance the Veteran’s office provides for current students, faculty and staff.
