CCC Ranked #1 for Veterans Program

For the sixth year in a row, the CCC’s Veteran and Military Resource Center is ranked number one by the Military Times.

VMRC offers assistance to veterans re-adjust to civilian life after their service.

Director Travis Karr says using the skills a veteran learns while serving can translate into employment. He hopes more vets will consider higher education.

“These centers are more than just a meeting place for veterans,” Karr said. “They have access to resources, benefits, peer support from other veterans, and we’re all focused on a holistic approach to their academic success that really impacts their lives.”

The survey asked more than 500 colleges and universities to describe aspects of military culture on campus, among other topics.

Students say the center helps them find the connections they need to succeed outside of the military.

“It actually helps people in my situation learn to adapt,” Army veteran Aaron Sands said. “For example, I’m blind, so sometimes it’s hard to just do things as an individual, let alone be a veteran. Learning how to do things, I guess, not as structured.

CCC ranked higher than schools in Texas, Michigan, and Washington.
