UIUC Center for Veterans in Higher Education

UIUC Wounded Veterans in Higher Education

Taking the next step in the evolution of programs for persons with severe disabilities, the U of I is constructing a new, state-of-the-art Center for Wounded Veterans in Higher Education. With a family-centric focus, the Center will provide health and life skills management training, facilitated peer mentorship, academic tutoring, psychological and career counseling, rehabilitative services, and employment services to the population of injured warriors returning from conflicts.

The Center will combine 24-hour comprehensive support to prepare severely wounded veterans to live independently and to successfully pursue their educational and career aspirations. The 30,000 square foot facility will provide offices for supporting programs, research spaces, a fitness center, residential units, a teaching kitchen, a conference room, tutorial support spaces, and a lounge.
