    VA partnership with universities and colleges to help with the transfer of military skills to academia, connect student Veterans to resources, and help coordinate VA care.

    Description

    The VITAL initiative provides a multitude of services and benefits to student veterans through a partnership between the New York Harbor Healthcare System and local colleges. By collaborating with both university staff and the Veterans Administration, the program focuses on veterans’ unique skillsets and needs to maximize success in the academic setting. From tutoring, work-study opportunities, individual counseling, and assistance with integration to VA healthcare and beyond, the services provided are prompt, comprehensive, and above all, confidential. VITAL services are available at CUNY schools, Fordham, Columbia University, St. John’s University and other schools across the city.
