The W. A. Franke College of Business Veteran Student Center (FCB VSC)

“The willingness of America's veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude.”

Through a very generous gift from FCB and a U.S. Navy veteran alum, the FCB VSC was created and dedicated to the recruitment, transition, retention, and career development of veterans attending The W. A. Franke College of Business. This is the first veteran center of its kind nationally dedicated to a business college.
