Adult Student and Veteran Center Receives Stackpole Hall Funds
Thanks to generous donations from the Stackpole Hall Foundation of St. Marys, PA, room 208 in the DuBois Educational Foundation (DEF) Building has been transformed to house the resource center for the Office for Adult Student and Veteran Services (OASV).
With $12,000 from Stackpole Hall, the former conference room has been furnished and equipped with computers and resources specific for adults and veterans who are returning to school after extended time away from the classroom environment. Trained staff members are also available to assist with career development activities including career exploration, job search skill development and career placement information. Staff can also assist with other career-related activities such as internships and informational interviewing opportunities.
Other services are offered to student veterans through the campus' partnerships with veteran services in the community. The partnerships with the Clearfield County Veteran's Affairs Office, DuBois Veterans’ Center, Veterans’ Employment Services at the PA CareerLink, and others help to provide assistance that is not just relevant to education, but lifestyle and readjustment help as well.
The center can be reserved for club meetings as well as job interviews and other career related events. The resource center will be formally dedicated in November, but the room is ready for use now. For information, please contact Sueann Doran at 814-375-4716 or Jeannine Hanes at 814-375-4836.
