Sen. Hagel to Help Dedicate Veteran Services Office Nov. 2
Omaha - Former Sen. Chuck Hagel will be on campus Friday, Nov. 2, to officially dedicate the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Military and Veteran University Services Office (MaV USO).
Hagel, a UNO alumnus, will join Chancellor John Christensen for the event, which begins with a 4:30 p.m. ribbon cutting outside of the MaV USO space inside the Eppley Administration Building on the north east corner.
Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony will be a reception and program scheduled to begin at 5:15 p.m. in the Chancellor’s Room of the Milo Bail Student Center (MBSC). The UNO MBSC is located on the north side of university’s Dodge Street Campus.
MaV USO, which opened in April, serves as a one-stop location where students can access programs and services specifically designed for active military, veterans and their families. Some of the services offered include GI Bill assistance, in-processing, deployment assistance and academic support.
“MaV USO continues our commitment as a military friendly school to provide one-stop support for our military veterans and active duty military students,” said B.J. Reed, senior vice chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs, in an earlier news release about the new office.
Parking for the event will be available on the third level of Lot V parking structure just south of Arts and Sciences Hall.
The deadline to RSVP has passed; however, those with questions should contact Gina Pearson, NU Foundation, at 402.502.4912, or Hayley Patton, director of MaV USO, at 554.4975.
