Below is a message on behalf of the Dr. James Todd, Vice President of Student Services. 

Dear MJC Veterans,

Over the last few weeks, the college administrative team has worked with Veterans Services to explore moving our Veterans Resource Center (VRC) from the Student Services Building into the Student Center. This space is quite a bit larger than the current Veterans Resource Center, and the move would double the size of our current VRC. The space also includes a back door and a sink. The Veteran Services staff would move into the Campus Life Office across the hall, allowing all of our Veterans Services to be located in the center of the campus. 

On September 8, Associate Dean of Student Services Bryan Justin Marks hosted a meeting of the Veterans Student Advisory Council after emailing all of you an open invitation to discuss the potential move. I have been informed that there was overwhelming support of moving our VRC to the Student Center at the end of the semester. Based on this input, we will schedule a relocation of the VRC after the fall semester to enable an opening of the new VRC in the Student Center at the beginning of the spring semester.

I look forward to continued collaboration with the Veterans Student Advisory Council, Associate Dean Marks, and all of you as we prioritize your experience and connection with our campus and our resources.

Sincerely,

James
