Kevin Stevens - Coordinator, Veterans Resource Center
Kevin comes to SOU by way of Eastern Michigan University. A Veteran himself, he has created Veterans Services departments, student mentor programs, developed outreach efforts, and redeveloped certifying and student services for military families to better support their successful transition into college. Before his time in Michigan, Kevin worked in Student and Veterans Services in Boston, Queens-New York City, Springfield-Missouri, and Doha, Qatar.
Kevin is a Veteran of the United States Air Force and National Guard and has worked on a variety of college campuses including Community Colleges, Big Ten, Ivy, and Mid-American affiliated conference schools. Kevin has served on the Board of Directors for the National Association of Veterans Program Administrators (NAVPA), on Veterans related sub-committees in the City University System of New York (CUNY), and is currently the Veterans Knowledge Community Representative for NASPA Region IV.
As a current doctoral student, his research interests include topics relating to creating military-friendly campuses and the LGBTQ Veterans college transition. Kevin has presented at national and regional conferences on the topics of military student support and LGBTQ Veterans. Kevin, his partner, dog, and two cats enjoy exploring Southern Oregon, finding new hiking trails, being outdoors and are excited to be a part of the SOU community!
Veterans Transition Assistants
VTA's are current students that can assist with general questions about the university. These students support programming. outreach, and social media initiatives at the VRC at SOU. Stop by and say hello they are normally at the front desk or sitting at a table ready to assist you as you enter the SOU community.
As a fairly new center on the SOU campus, the VRC is always looking for opportunities to collaborate and network with our community and campus partners should a need or fit exist. Those currently in graduate school looking for an internship opportunity and/or those wishing to volunteer should email firstname.lastname@example.org to connect with our Coordinator.
