Meet our Staff and Veteran Students

The Veterans Resource Center is staffed by dedicated professionals from several departments across campus who have an interest in Veterans' success.

You'll also meet Veteran students on our team who works through the VA Work-Study program, helping fellow Veterans who are attending or planning to attend classes at Foothill College.

We're always looking for opportunities to network with the community, to raise awareness of Veteran-related issues and to advocate for Veterans.
