Mission Statement

The Office for Veterans and Military Personnel (OVMP) is a centralized office designed to provide comprehensive resources to veterans and Veterans Affairs benefit recipients to aid in their overall success as IUPUI students. In addition to providing the required certification for IUPUI student-veterans to receive education entitlement, we also provide advice, guidance, advocacy, and outreach services for our student veteran population. We act as a liaison between IUPUI and the Department of Veterans Affairs while assisting our student veterans in their transition from military to student life. Our team consists of veterans and civilians dedicated to creating a veteran friendly campus.

Cup O' Joe For A Joe

In response, Green Beans Coffee has launched Cup of Joe For A Joe to let anyone, anywhere in the world, say thanks to our troops through the simple act of buying a cup of coffee and having it delivered along with their own personal note of encouragement into the hands of a deployed soldier.
