UMKC Student Veteran Resources on the Rise

By Eric Gormly, Assistant Director – Student Veteran Support Services

One of UMKC’s newest offices on campus is Student Veteran Support Services. As of February 2020 we have been creating programming, implementing policy, and providing space and opportunity for UMKC to help serve those who served.  With a dedicated space for student veterans, the At Ease Zone located in Student Union room 310, offers study space, a lounge area, open-use computers, fridge and microwave, coffee/pop, and information for on and off-campus resources for our currently serving and prior-service military students.

Be on the lookout for activities to promote and support student veterans on campus! These include the Student Veterans Organization “Battle of the Branches Food Drive” that will support the UMKC Roo Pantry and take place the entire month of November, and Veterans Week that will take place from November 8th – 12th.

If you ever have questions about anything related to Student Veteran Support Services or the Student Veterans Organization, please reach out to Eric Gormly at
