Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success

Pierce College Fort Steilacoom has been awarded a three-year, $364,000 U.S. Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) grant to develop a Center of Excellence for Veteran Student Success.

With this grant, Pierce College aims to increase veteran student enrollment and completion rates by:

Students who have served in the military are invited to visit the Veterans Resource Center in Cascade 425. The center offers the following services and amenities:

  • A textbook lending library
  • Computers for student use
  • Study areas
  • Opportunities to meet other veterans, and connect with both on- and off-campus services and resources
  • Community service providers to assist veterans with transitioning to the civilian life
