SUNY Delhi Recognized as 2022 "Best for Vets" College
Delhi, NY (11/10/2022) — SUNY Delhi is recognized as a "Best for Vets" college in a 2022 survey by MilitaryTimes.com, an independent news source for issues affecting the lives and careers of military service members across the United States. The survey assessed higher education institutions on student veteran success factors, such as retention and degree completion, as well as available military-specific resources, financial assistance, and admissions and registration policies.
"I am very proud of the staff and faculty who worked so hard to help SUNY Delhi receive the designation of a 'Best for Vets' college," said Dr. Tomas Aguirre, Vice President for Student Life and Chief Diversity Officer at SUNY Delhi. "As a Navy veteran, I understand how important it is for veterans to feel supported and recognized while pursuing their degrees in higher education."
This year, SUNY Delhi celebrated Veterans Day with a campus-wide Salute to Veterans event featuring music, poetry, and a military ceremony. The campus also hosted guest speaker Diana Pasterchick, Coordinator of Veteran and Military Services at SUNY System Administration and a retired Senior Master Sergeant who served in the U.S. Air Force for 26 years. Pasterchick shared best practices for supporting veteran and military-affiliated students in curricular and co-curricular experiences.
SUNY Delhi supports its veteran community across the institution. With a streamlined admission process for veterans, SUNY Delhi also accepts veteran service experience as academic credit. Student veterans have access to extensive services such as peer mentoring and support through the campus Veterans Resource Center, as well as health and counseling services and career guidance. Additional benefits include tutorial assistance, bill deferment, and work-study programs.
