The Undergraduate Veterans Leadership Program provides leadership and professional development opportunities to first-year veteran and military students from across The Ohio State University.

Presented by The Ohio State University Office of Military and Veterans Services and the Fisher Leadership Initiative at the Max M. Fisher College of Business, this three-day event connects students with critical resources, knowledge, experiences and a network of peers as they begin their academic careers at Ohio State.

The 2019 Program will take place in Pfahl Conference Center. More details for the program will be announced soon!
