The Santa Ana College Veteran’s Network of Allies

VET NET Ally Program

The VET NET Ally Mission

Developed at CSU Long Beach, the VET NET Ally Program is an education and awareness program that develops a network of faculty, staff, administrators and students committed to creating a welcoming and supportive campus environment for military service members and veterans here at Santa Ana College.

The VET NET Ally Program supports the academic freedom and professional, personal, and social success of service members and veterans, provides support, information, and assistance for service members and veterans, respects the right to privacy and confidentiality of veterans and service members in accordance with the Confidentiality Statement in the VET NET Ally Handbook, and creates a welcoming environment for service members and veterans at SAC by having Allies across campus display their VET NET Ally symbols at their workstations.
