Institute for Veterans Education and Transition (IVET)

The newly formed Institute for Veterans Education and Transition (IVET) will carry on much of the work started by Dr. Marvin Westwood and the Centre for Group Counselling and Trauma (CGCT) who have long been pioneers in the fields of veterans’ transition and trauma counselling research and programming.

IVET will provide a point of entry to UBC for military-connected individuals transitioning from military service as they explore new academic and career opportunities. By providing counselling services, training, and educational opportunities, IVET can connect Veterans with resources and services to help ensure their success in the civilian world.
