Excelsior College Relaunches Online Veteran Resource Center
Albany, New York — Excelsior College has updated and relaunched the
Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center, an online resource center for veterans. The veterans center provides resources not only for education but also for career, health and wellness, and transition to civilian life.
Veterans and military students represent 51 percent of Excelsior’s student population, and this center is designed with them in mind. However, the Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center is also available for the entire Excelsior community and the public.
“In recognition of the unique needs of veterans, Excelsior is pleased to relaunch the Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center,” said James Lettko, chief operating officer of Excelsior College and retired U.S. Army brigadier general. “We are committed to serving the veterans in our Excelsior community and supporting all U.S. veterans.”
Named a “Best for Vets” school 11 times, Excelsior College has made it a priority to ensure that all veterans, as well as servicemembers, have access to the resources and education they need.
“In honor of my father’s 30-year career in the U.S. Air Force and with deep gratitude to all veterans and military servicemembers who defend our great nation and democratic values, my family and I are so pleased to support the relaunch of the Lt. Col. Bryant A. Murray Veterans Center to pay it forward to our veterans and Excelsior College, which has demonstrated such an abiding commitment to them,” said Bryanne Hamill, alumna and former trustee of Excelsior College. “Having observed first-hand the sacrifices of our veterans—putting country above all else—we owe it to them to provide them the tools, including education, to ensure their success thereafter.”
