College named as Veteran Supportive Campus

The Washington Department of Veteran Affairs (WDVA) recently named Seattle Central as a Partner for Veteran Support Campuses. The certificate is offered to post-secondary institutions in Washington that are approved to accept GI Bill benefits. Seattle Central will be listed on the WDVA website as a veteran supportive campus, increasing the college’s visibility to prospective veteran students.

In order to become a supportive campus partner, Seattle Central was required to meet the eight keys of success, some of which include:

  • Coordinate and centralize campus efforts for all veterans, together with the creation of a designated space
  • Collaborate with local communities and organizations, including government agencies, to align and coordinate various services for veterans
  • Utilize a uniform set of data tools to collect and track information on veterans, including demographics, retention and degree completion

Seattle Central will soon be presented with a certificate to honor this achievement.
