Welcome to Carson-Newman University’s Office of Military and Veteran Services — the central point of connecting veterans, service members and their qualified dependents with academic and person support resources, both on and off-campus. Our goal is to support your academic and personal endeavors from acceptance to graduation.
Carson-Newman is a certified Tennessee Veterans Education Transition Support (VETS) Campus, approved by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission in August 2023.
Dedicated in 2019 in honor of former Carson-Newman University president and Vietnam War veteran Dr. J. Randall O’Brien, the Veterans Center aims to serve those who have served in the United States armed forces. The Veterans Center is a place for all of our veterans – students and staff, to meet to study, socialize and build community.
The Center, located on the first floor of the Baker Building, adjacent to ROTC, provides space for students, faculty, and staff who are also veterans to meet, relax and socialize. It includes study areas, a kitchenette, comfortable seating, and a billiards table.
