Mission Statement

To provide a community for active duty military, veterans and those who feel a kinship to support our veterans and military personnel across the Carnegie Mellon University campus, for sharing like experiences and interests, opportunities for engagement within the university community, and for providing outreach related to veteran and active duty military benefits from a variety of sources.

Headshot of Mike DankoMike Danko has been with the university since 2008, first serving as the ROTC coordinator and then expanding his role as the veterans benefits manager and school certifying officer. In addition, Mike works with the active duty personnel attending the university. Working with veterans and military related students comes naturally to Mike as he is a retired master sergeant from the Army and former infantryman with over 26 years’ service.

“Having the opportunity to continue to care for veterans and other military related students is something that I enjoy and am grateful to be able to do. Expanding that consideration to our university employees with the forming of the Veterans Alliance is very exciting.”
