BERKELEY COLLEGE LAUNCHES EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM
 FOR DISABLED COMBAT VETERANS
 

Berkeley College is proud to announce the launching of CVET, the Berkeley College Combat Veterans Education Partnership. This Partnership is designed specifically to meet the academic and career goals of disabled combat veterans. The CVET program, administered by the Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, is staffed by retired and current members of the military who are fully aware of the unique situation of disabled combat veterans returning home from duty.

“CVET participants are enrolled in the academic program of their choice at Berkeley College and receive direct counseling and support throughout their entire academic journey,” says Assistant Vice President of Military and Veterans Affairs Richard Robitaille, EdD.  

The distance learning program offers Associate’s and Bachelor’s degrees through the Berkeley College School of Business and the School of Professional Studies. Disabled combat veterans can enroll in the program and begin their studies while recovering at a military installation. When CVET participants near completion of their academic programs, they are connected with the Berkeley College Career Services Department, which maintains relationships with corporations interested in offering internships to veterans of the armed forces.

“From start to finish, disabled veterans are supported to help ensure the successful completion of their academic programs and placement in organizations that want to assist veterans in transitioning to the next phase of their lives,” says Dr. Robitaille, a combat veteran with 20 years in the US Army. “In addition, Berkeley College offers these veterans free lifetime career assistance.”
