Brookdale Veteran’s Center


Brookdale’s Veteran’s Center is dedicated to providing support services to veterans and active duty military personnel. In addition to being a service and information hub, the Center is a focal point for our veterans to gather and interact informally. It also provides a dedicated location for Veteran Club meetings. The Center is located in Main Academic Central (MAC) Room 112. Parking is most convenient in Lot #5.

Staffed during regular business hours, Monday-Friday by Christine Forman, Student Development Associate, veterans have access to a collection of valuable information. They can schedule appointments for the comprehensive array of assistance services, including:

  • Review and authorization of GI Bill benefits and Veterans Administration services
  • Assistance with degree planning and short-term personal concerns
  • Transition from military to civilian life issues
  • Career and occupational assessment and counseling, and links to assistance with job search and career development services
  • Licensed mental health professionals, including combat veterans licensed or certified to provide these services, available to provide specific workshops, counseling groups, and interventions targeted to life transition and adjustment issues after separation from service  and/or service related disabilities
  • Connections to and coordination with Monmouth County, NJ state and federal veterans-related programs and services
