Serve New York at The Service Collaborative of Western New York has funded an AmeriCorps VISTA position to recruit more veterans to St. Bonaventure University and its graduate Buffalo Center at Hilbert College.
The coordinator's time is split between the two campuses. The goal of the new position is to create an Office of Veteran Affairs that will recruit student veterans and increase the number of current services provided to student veterans and their families at Hilbert and St. Bonaventure.
The VISTA member will coordinate with student admissions to conduct veteran outreach, design and implement veteran specific orientations, increase community awareness, research best practices, and enhance current services offered at both campuses resulting in increased veteran student retention.
Hilbert College and St. Bonaventure University are working to enhance employment opportunities for the veteran community by offering more access to higher education through these efforts.
