Making the transition from the military to a civilian career can be daunting for student-veterans. The Black Bear Veteran Network has been established to connect UMaine alumni veterans and current UMaine student-veterans to mentor, share knowledge, create networking opportunities and assist each other.

Registration for the Black Bear Veteran Network is online. Note: There is a checkbox on the form to indicate that you are a veteran.

More information is online. For additional information, call BJ Roach, career counselor and Maine Mentor Program Coordinator at 581-1357; or UMaine’s Office of Veterans Education and Transition Services at 581-1316,
