LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s student military veteran population will soon have a center dedicated to supporting them with all aspects of university life.

UNL’s new Student Veterans Resource Center will open in the fall and be located in the Nebraska Union. Its mission will be to support student veterans’ transition to academic life and provide services related to them.

The center will provide academic and transition coaching and peer mentors to help student veterans in and out of the classroom. Darrell Everhart, a retired U.S. Navy captain, will be the center’s founding director. Everhart is an academic success coach at UNL and the adviser for the university’s Veteran Student Organization.

Last fall, UNL had more than 500 veterans or dependents enrolled who received Montgomery GI or Post-9/11 educational benefits.
