Veterans Employment and Support


We are honored to serve the veterans and active military who have given so much for our country. As you transition into civilian life, our mission is to provide access to employment opportunities, veteran's preference information, networking opportunities with mentors, and other resources offered on and off campus. 

On behalf of Texas State University, thank you for your service!
