Texas Veterans Higher Education Symposium

The Texas Veterans Higher Education Symposium convenes veterans, higher education administrators, state officials, health care providers, and others who offer services to veterans throughout the state in order to share best practices. The goal of the Symposium is to connect local, state, and national support services for higher education institutions with student veterans and military-connected students. Additionally, the Symposium is an opportunity to increase communication and collaboration across the state, while bringing together institutions of higher education and the two largest systems of education in the state of Texas supporting veterans.

Join us for the 12th Annual Symposium to be held in October 2020 at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi. The theme of the symposium will be “Marketing Student Veteran Success.” Dates will be announced soon!
