WELCOME TO THE EWU VRC
We here at the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) provide critical services and support to our service members, veterans and their families. The VRC assists with your transition from the military to higher education and back into civilian life as you learn to navigate the university system. We will support the unique recruitment, retention and educational needs of our students whose lives are connected to the military.
