NSHE Notes
by Chancellor Dan Klaich

May 27, 2016

On Monday, we will take a moment of reflection to honor those who lost their lives in service to our nation. For generations, their sacrifices have preserved our freedoms and democratic way of life.

I believe a critical part in honoring our fallen military brothers and sisters is to help those who were able to come home alive. Approximately 3,500 veterans (about three percent of our student population) receive federal education benefits at NSHE institutions. We have offered most non-resident veterans the ability to pay in-state tuition, fee waivers for Nevada National Guard members (and their spouses and children), as well as grant-in-aid for the children of spouses of those service members killed in the line of duty.

Our institutions have also invested in providing vital support systems with the veterans' resource centers to help these individuals transition to the civilian world and succeed as college students. If you are a veteran, or know a veteran, please visit our website at http://www.nevada.edu/veterans for a list of available veterans' resources.

This weekend, I encourage you to honor their patriotism and valor, as well as share in remembering their service to our nation.
