Goodwin University, the unique and fast-growing East Hartford school known for its innovative approach and non-traditional student body, has opened a new on-campus resource center dedicated to serving student military veterans.
The Veterans OASIS, short for Operation Academic Support for Incoming Service, is modeled after a resource center concept first conceived by women’s groups that has become a mainstay at colleges and universities across the country.“
It is thrilling for us at the university to, in some small way, give some recognition to those among us who allow us to do what we do every day,” Mark Scheinberg, the university’s president, said at Wednesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony. U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Congressman John Larson also attended the opening.
