Veterans & Military Personnel

Current WIU Military Liaisons

The Veteran Resource Center (VRC) Liaisons are WIU faculty, staff, and administrators who dedicate time and talent to support the initiatives of the Veteran Resource Center and to provide assistance to military service students across the WIU campuses. The organization began with the hard work of Tim Winchester, Candace McLaughlin, and Andi Potter proposing and leading the charge for the establishment of a Veteran Resource Center and continues today through the Military Friendly Credentialing Program and other activities coordinated by the Liaisons.
