Veterans Resource Center

The Veterans Resource Center (VRC), located in building 21, Rm 253 provides a central entry point for veterans and their families as they transition from the military into the Grossmont College community. Staffed by veterans, the overall goal is to deliver tangible tools and services to optimize students' academic success.  Separate from the campus Veteran Services Office, the VRC fosters a collaborative delivery of student services between such offices as Disabled Student Programs and Services (DSPS), Counseling, the Assistive Technology Center, as well as other on/off campus agencies who provide services to veterans and their families.  The VRC provides services in three primary areas: academics, camaraderie, and wellness.  Specific services include the following:

  • Access to computers and assistance in the use of assistive technologies, including specialized software for nontraditional learners
  • Academic counseling
  • Peer support, mentoring
  • Financial aid information and application assistance
  • Referral to on/off campus resources (e.g., DSPS, campus Veteran Services Office and community veterans agencies)

For more information, contact Carl Fielden, the Project Coordinator for the VRC.  He can be reached at (619) 644-7111 or carl.fielden@gcccd.edu
