On Veterans Day, November 11, Stevens joins the rest of the nation in expressing our gratitude to all veterans, especially those within the Stevens community.
We pay tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of our veteran and military-connected community with American flags on Castle Point and a tribute banner unfurled in the Howe Center.
Over the years, Stevens has educated over 170 veterans and children of active-duty military members. The university’s connection to veterans and the military continues to be a source of pride and enrichment.
