Initiative Report: Veteran Career Panel

Senator Peter Roberto, who serves as the Senate Military Liaison, has been working hard on a brand new initiative: the Veteran Career Panel event. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 11 at 1 PM. You can learn more and RSVP by click here.

Here is what Senator Roberto had to say about his role and the initiative:

The Veterans Career Panel initiative involves my role as Military Liaison for Student Senate. I am organizing a career panel for our Veteran Mason students, Mason students who are currently serving (either active duty, with their National Guard, or in the Reserves) or are members of our ROTC program. The event will be held over Zoom at 1pm on November 11th, Veterans Day. We are also planning to have the event streamed on university TVs!

Most of my time working on the event has been focused on getting panelists for it since I wanted our panelists to represent our Military community on campus. Currently we have one former member of our ROTC program, a Mason professor and combat veteran, a Navy Reservist and Graduate program coordinator at Mason, and hopefully we’ll have a recent Mason graduate and veteran as well!

Getting this together has taken a lot of work not only from myself but from our wonderful Student Government Advisors, Student Government Leadership, and our partners in the Office of Military Services, Career Services, the Alumni Association, and Event Services.
