ILCC- National Louis University Vets Center
 
 
 
The VISTA will work to interrupt the cycle of poverty by supporting Veterans, Active duty, Reserve, National Guard service members and their family members by assisting with transitioning into higher education and supporting them during their time at NLU. The Vista’s primary focus is on students who fall into the “at risk’ category i.e., lacking basic academic skills, struggles with personal issues, address poverty-related needs, etc. which could directly impact their persistence to continue in school. While service, the VISTA will: 1. Improve higher education opportunities/access for returning veterans, service members and families. 2. Focus on supporting the personal/professional needs of student veterans/service members and families. 3. Provide assistance to new and returning student veterans/service members and families with accessing VA benefits, connecting them with applicable campus resources/programs or external resources i.e., IL Campus Compact. 4. Volunteer recruitment, training, placement, supervision, and retention strategies
