Jackson State University Opens New Veterans Center

This week Jackson State University in Mississippi opened its new Veterans Center on campus. The new center will provide student support services focused on the special needs of veterans, service members, dependents, and survivors.

“The center will assist veterans in successfully navigating the academic environment through guidance, support services, and resources. The primary goal is to provide a seamless transition for veterans and to assist them in becoming engaged and well prepared citizens in the community,” said Dr. Marcus A. Chanay, vice president for student life at Jackson State.

Timothy Abram was named director of the new center. He had been serving as associate director of the Center for Service and Community Engaged Learning at the university. Abram is a former Army captain who earned a Bronze Star during Operation Desert Storm. He holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in guidance counseling from Jackson State and is currently pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership.
