Syracuse University’s History of Supporting Veterans
The Veterans Career Transition Program is a continuation of Syracuse University’s long-standing commitment to veterans. Following WWII, then-Chancellor William P. Tolley, served on the Presidential committee of college administrators that drafted the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944—the original “G.I. Bill of Rights." At that time, Chancellor Tolley also announced Syracuse University's "uniform admissions program” that ensured all military personnel admission to Syracuse University upon their return. At the end of the war, Syracuse University grew to be ranked first in New York State and 17th in the country in veteran enrollment.
Syracuse University’s commitment to servicemen and women has only grown since that time, with the establishment of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families co-founded by JPMorgan Chase & Co., the Veterans Resource Center, the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities, the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans’ Families, and the VWISE entrepreneurship program for women veterans, as well as a number of other programs and research projects, including the Veterans Career Transition Program.
