A Community of Care Awaits Veterans and Military

Our support for military-connected students begins as soon as you express interest in Lewis and follows until you have completed your degree. Lewis provides a community thatís dedicated to making your transition to civilian life and higher education the best it can be. Thatís why we founded Lewis University Student Veterans of America (LUSVA), which promotes a close community of student veteran fellowship while staying active with the University community and acting as ambassadors in the Chicago area. Our Veterans Affairs Advisory Committee, composed of deans, administrators, faculty, staff, and student veterans, meets once a semester to review and enhance the veteran experience at Lewis. Weíve got your back.
