Exciting News – Military/Veterans Office/Regan Jones

Dear Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce that Notre Dame is establishing a new Office of Military and Veterans Affairs and Regan Jones has been appointed to lead this effort as Director, effective Sept. 4, 2017.

The decision to create the new office is based on the recommendation of a nine-month study conducted by the University’s Military Affairs Steering Committee that explored ways to make Notre Dame the nation’s best university for service members, veterans, and their family members, as well as a national leader in ROTC training.

As the inaugural director for the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, Regan Jones will report to Vice President and Associate Provost Laura Carlson. In this role, Regan will develop and implement a strategic plan that builds, integrates, and strengthens the many ongoing programs at Notre Dame that serve service members, veterans, ROTC faculty and students, and their families.

Regan’s leadership, military background, and familiarity with Notre Dame’s ROTC programs make him uniquely qualified for this role. His efforts during the past year to improve recognition of Notre Dame’s programs that support service members and veterans are noteworthy. I am confident Regan’s leadership and the structure provided by this new office will enable Notre Dame to become the nation’s leader in this important area.

Please join me in congratulating Regan on his new assignment. We look forward to partnering with him with this exciting new initiative. An external, public announcement regarding the new office and Regan’s appointment is targeted for mid-November.

Yours in Notre Dame,
Jim Morrison
