Veterans Resource Center

 

 

Mission

The Veterans Resource Center (VRC), located in building 21, Rm 253 provides a central entry point for veterans and their families as they transition from the military into the Grossmont College community. Staffed by our program specialist and counselors the overall goal is to deliver tangible tools and services to optimize students' academic success. Separate from the campus Veteran Affairs Office (VAO), the VRC fosters a collaborative delivery of student services between such offices as Accessibility Resource Center (A.R.C.), the Assistive Technology Center, Gizmos Kitchen Food Pantry as well as other on/off campus agencies who provide services to veterans and their families. The VRC strives to provide services in three primary areas: academics, camaraderie, and wellness.
