student walking out of OVMAE office



The Office for Veteran and Military Academic Engagement (OVMAE) serves the Arizona State University community by promoting dialogue, teaching, and research that increases information, understanding, knowledge, and relationships among military, civilian, and academic cultures.

Our goal is to listen to veteran students, look for ways to connect them with faculty and other students and continue to learn where and how to build bridges between these different cultures. We welcome your suggestions and integration ideas and look forward to learning together and developing opportunities to serve one another and collaborate.

We provide our participants with an edited volume of pre-assigned readings that add content and context to both the wilderness experience and the transition from military service to civilian life.
