Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower and engage our ASU military and veteran community with their academic and personal success here at ASU and beyond.

What we do

The Pat Tillman Veterans Center serves the students and families who have served our country by helping them succeed on their college journey and preparing them for life after they graduate. College is a major transition for any student, and even more so for military-affiliated students because of their overall life experience and divergent path to college. The Pat Tillman Veterans Center assists active-duty, veteran and veteran-dependent students with their military education benefits and offers programs, events, and a place where student veterans can connect with and support each other.

Who we are

The Pat Tillman Veterans Center staff includes veterans, current military personnel, dependent family members, and others connected to the military or veteran experience. Many of our team members have walked the same path current student veterans and military-connected learners are now traveling. This enables the veterans center staff to build a strong framework of guidance and support for our military-affiliated students.

Our history

The Pat Tillman Veterans Center opened its first office on the Tempe campus in 2011. Today, we have locations on all four campuses, at Sun Devil Stadium and at the ASU at Lake Havasu location, where we offer dedicated support for service members, military veterans and their families. Our staff members challenge themselves every day to live up to the legacy of our namesake, Pat Tillman. Pat was an ASU football player who was later drafted into the NFL and eventually gave up a multimillion dollar contract to join the Army and serve his country during wartime. Sadly, while on a combat deployment to Afghanistan, Pat was killed by friendly fire in 2004. Pat’s enthusiasm for everything he did inspires the work we do at the veterans center. Like him, we share a passion for excellence, leadership and honor.

Arizona State University honors the life and legacy of former ASU and pro football star and military veteran Pat Tillman. Pat exemplified being a student, athlete and a solider.
