President Olian's Veterans Day message

November 11, 2022

Students raise the flag on Veterans Day.

On this Veterans Day, let us celebrate the many who have served our country with distinction and valor. These heroes are with us every day at Quinnipiac — as students, faculty and staff.

We are enriched by the diverse experiences, wisdom and leadership capabilities brought into our community by our Veterans. And we are gratified that this fall, Military Times ranked us No. 3 in the country and No. 1 in Connecticut in its “Best for Vets: Colleges” rankings.

Jason Burke, a former U.S. Navy pilot, Assistant VP for Student Experience and Executive Director of Veteran and Military Affairs, leads our Veteran community. He is joined by Navy corpsman Cleve Webb ’24, an aspiring physician, who is President of our Student Veteran Organization.

Please join me in recognizing the selfless contributions of Veterans — to this country’s freedoms and security, and to the lives of many around the world for whom our soldiers are their saviors. To our Veterans at QU, we are humbled by your service and honored that you are members of our Bobcat family.
