Meet the Office of Military & Veterans Affairs Team
Our Program Coordinator
Jennifer Austin, program coordinator in the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, knows first-hand what it is like to be a Creighton University student. The native of Harlan, in southwest Iowa, attended Creighton before going on to pursue real estate licenses in both Iowa and Nebraska.
When she was looking for a career that allowed her more time with her family, Jenni was thrilled to discover her alma mater had an opening. She was hired initially as an administrative assistant, providing support to the president of the University, and began her current position in June 2014.
Jenni is the go-to person in the office, working with veterans, active duty personnel and their spouses and dependents to coordinate educational benefits from the VA. She is there to answer questions, provide support, and to make sure students receive the military benefits they are entitled to in a timely manner.
While much has changed at Creighton since Jenni was a student, one thing has stayed the same: People at Creighton care about student success. And now Jenni is part of ensuring that success for military students.
