Ask A Veteran Anything

ask a vet

When: 12-1:30, Tuesday May 2, 2017

Where: Anderson Academic Commons - Carnegie Green

The DUSVA would like to invite the entire DU community to come out and participate in "Ask a Veteran Anything." This is a first of its kind conversation with student veterans at DU. Ten student veterans will be on-hand to answer questions from faculty, staff, students and alums about their active duty time, veteran experience, transition to civilian life, and integration into the DU community. Student veterans bring varied perspectives and experiences that add to the diversity of our campus.

To learn more about specific individuals who presented on this panel, visit the Office of Graduate Studies' Ask a Vet blog series.

Yellow Ribbon Increase

On Veterans Day 2016, Chancellor Chopp announced an increase in Yellow Ribbon support for eligible student veterans starting in the Fall of 2017. This increased funding will help student veterans achieve their academic goals at DU by assisting with the financial burden of higher education. Please see the Newsroom articles for more information and to view the video of Chancellor Chopp's announcement.

Film Screening: ACRONYM: The Cross-Generational Battle with PTSD

ACRONYM is a gripping, vivid and real account of the invisible trauma war leaves behind. Regardless of their combat tours in different wars, many U.S. veterans living with PTSD share the same common enemy. ACRONYM takes a different approach to examining this important topic, with veterans sharing their most personal stories of both horror and triumph. The documentary does not place blame, nor does it suggest a singular approach to "solving" the issue. PTSD is a very personal and individual problem.

When: May 23, 5:30 PM

Where: Davis Auditorium, Sturm Hall, Room 248

The event is free, but we request that you RSVP
