VA Secretary speaks at Florida university

Secretary Shinseki spoke at the University of South Florida last week regarding the VA’s pilot program, “VetSuccess on Campus.” The new VA program is designed to aid veterans who are transitioning from the military to college life.

Shinseki said, “By providing on-campus benefits assistance and adjustment counseling, this Veteran-focused support program is on the leading-edge of VA’s drive to ensure Veteran-centric services to all Veterans.”  

VetSuccess provides veterans at the University of South Florida with Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service and mental health counselors on campus.

Stay tuned to find out if this program is expanded to other college campuses around the country.
