Dominican University’s Student Veteran Organization (DUSVO)

The DUSVO provides a positive presence for veterans, dependents of veterans and active duty personnel on campus while contributing to the overall cultural diversity of the University.

DUSVO helps address the challenges faced by military members transitioning from military service to the Dominican Experience by facilitating supportive services and active involvement within the campus and the surrounding community of Marin County.
