Sound Off Conference
April 9, 2018
Save the date for the Sound-Off Conference, April 17, 2018 from 8am to 5pm in the SUB Ballrooms! The event is geared toward highlighting resources that are helpful to student veterans in accessing their benefits. Representatives from these important resources will be present. The conference will also offer a “Green Zone” break-out session geared towards staff and faculty that will cover the demographics of UNM’s student veteran population, challenges that student veterans face when transitioning to both civilian and college life, and some ways to help ease the student veterans’ transition. There is no registration required.
In an effort to celebrate the presence of Military and Veterans at UNM, Staff Council is calling for nominations to recognize our Military and Veteran staff! Please nominate a colleague, or yourself, here. Nominees will be recognized with a certificate at the Sound-Off Conference luncheon. Nominations accepted through Friday, April 13, 5PM.
We honor and appreciate that Military and Veteran employees bring unique experiences and qualities to their employment, and we want to highlight the contributions of these Military and Veteran Lobos as well as thank them for their service to our country. For more information on the Sound-Off Event, contact the VRC or contact Eliberto Calderon, President of Student Veterans of UNM.
