The Yale Veterans Network (YVN) steering committee consists of staff members who volunteer their time and skills. The committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 12-1 pm. All members of the Yale community are invited to attend these sessions to learn more about YVN and to share their ideas. We welcome involvement of any kind from across the university. The steering committee is led by co-chairs and contains the following committees:
Communications and Marketing - Responsible for working with the Office of Diversity & Inclusion liaison to create communications and timelines.
Community Outreach - Responsible for creating relationships with external organizations who have a focus on the advancement of veterans, promoting the existence of the Yale Veterans Network, and cultivating relationships.
Professional Development - Responsible for identifying educational opportunities, helping to create a forum for the Yale Veterans Network, and working with the Staffing liaison to link recruitment and retention opportunities.
Networking – Responsible for identifying veterans on campus, and creating forums for veterans and allies to come together on a regular basis, with a specific focus on internal community building.
