Helping support student veterans


VETSMART is the University of Nevada, Reno’s Veteran Services Department training to create awareness of potential challenges student veterans may face during the transition from the military to the academic environment. This training will discuss the intersectionality of various identities and abilities along with socioeconomic and racial challenges. Additionally, we will explore some of the military cultural differences that student veterans face on campus.

There are two versions of the training:

  • An abridged version which you should plan on lasting 30 minutes
  • The standard version which you should plan on lasting 60 minutes with Q&A included
