VETS Task Force

In January 2014, as a result of the passion and support of Golden West College’s dedicated classified staff, faculty and administrators, a team of individuals stepped forward to lead the dialogue and direction of Veterans Services and the future of support services at Golden West College. The GWC Veterans Taskforce serves as a cross divisional team collaborating amongst the Vice President of Student Life and Administrative Services, the Vice President of Instruction and Student Learning, and the Office of the President.

Mission: Establish a taskforce among staff, faculty, administrators, and students to identify and strengthen support and connections for GWC Student Veterans across all different Veterans Support Areas including: Veterans Enrollment Services, Veterans Resource Center, and the Student Veterans Organization.

The GWC Veterans Task Force is an open membership opportunity for anyone--staff, faculty, administration, or student-- who is passionate about collaborating to make a difference in the opportunities and services for GWC Veterans.
