UW-Madison to continue support of veterans
April 19, 2011
The University of Wisconsin-Madison will continue to support veterans under the Wisconsin GI Bill, Chancellor Biddy Martin said today in response to a legislator's criticism.
"As a land-grant university, we have a long history of backing military veterans who are seeking a degree, of supporting their academic careers and in helping them achieve their educational goals," said Martin.
"Our commitment will not change when UW-Madison is given public authority status," Martin added. "It is unthinkable that we would not continue to support veterans as they seek a university education."
UW-Madison was named to a list of military friendly schools compiled by GI Jobs magazine. The university, which is home to all three ROTC branches, enrolls more than 600 students with military experience and is making continued outreach effort to veterans.
