Virtual Student Veterans Center: QL+ students are tasked with the challenge to create a Virtual Student Veterans Center on the Xavier University website to help Xavier Student Veterans. Xavier University is proud to identify as one of the top rated military friendly institutions in the Midwest. The designation is largely the result of the numerous programs and services offered by the Student Veterans Center (SVC) on campus. While the center is able to connect with and assist many Veteran and military connected students in person, there is a significant segment of the population that is unable to take full advantage of these services. The primary reason for their inability to take advantage is related to their non-traditional student status, many have families, jobs and other responsibilities that prevent them from walking into the physical office during normal business hours. This is the segment of the population that the Virtual Student Veterans Center would serve. Information about community resources, career opportunities, volunteer opportunities, scholarships and grants, as well as all other programing provided by the SVC staff would be cataloged and available to be accessed by all students around the clock.
