About Us

Meet Our Staff

Since 2010, The University of South Florida has had a stand-alone office devoted to serving the needs of veterans, active-duty, reservists, and military connected students and their families. The Office of Veteran Success (OVS) does this by providing a seamless transition for our nation’s warriors from military life, through campus life into a meaningful career by providing high quality services and opportunities for academic success, personal growth, and professional development. Points of contact for OVS are below.
