Veterans’ Reading Room At The Claire T. Carney Library – A Recognition of Service, A Place Of Support

Looking Through The Veterans' Reading Room DoorWith Veterans Day just around the corner we’d like to join in the university’s recognition of veterans and active duty military at UMassD by reminding all of the Claire T. Carney Library’s Veterans Reading Room

Students who are veterans or active duty military are invited to take advantage of the Veterans’ Reading Room in the Claire T. Carney Library. The space, developed in consultation with the Student Veterans Association and UMass Dartmouth Veterans Affairs, offers comfortable study and interaction geared toward the particular needs of the veteran student — less glass, VA and other resources, comradeship, and support. A library study space focused on veterans’ needs is a fairly rare item, so please let us know if there is anything you need to make the VRR more useful to you. We thank you for your service.

Statements on Veterans’ Services and the Veterans’ Reading Room from our collaborators, the Student Veterans Association and Student Affairs:

The Student Veterans Association is committed to helping past, present and future Veterans at UMass Dartmouth. As a student group, we help facilitate events and support for military members. UMassD has done an excellent job by setting up the Veterans’ Reading Room in the library as a central place to study and meet like minded individuals. We pride ourselves in developing professional skills and talent as the next generation of the future leaders from UMassD.

Whether you are a student, staff or faculty member, please know that you a valued Veteran and member of our campus community. I hope you will accept our appreciation for your service, as well as our interest in who you are, as well as your experiences and opinions. Please feel free to contact us at veterans@umassd.edu with any questions or comments you may have. Ronald Voltz, our Veteran Assistant, is eager to connect with you as a colleague and peer resource. Based out of the Student Affairs Office (Campus Center, suite 221), Ron spends time in the Veterans Reading Room, as well as throughout campus talking with Student Veterans and representing their interests throughout the University. Many thanks for your service to our country and your feedback on how UMass Dartmouth can serve you better. Sincerely, Shelly Metivier Scott, Associate Dean of Students, UMass Dartmouth.
