VITAL Program

The Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership (VITAL) offers educational outreach and mental health services to eligible veterans.

Through the VITAL program, student veterans will have enhanced access to mental health services offered outside of CCBC. VA psychologist Meade Eggleston will be housed on the Catonsville campus from 9 a.m. – 3p.m., Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

This initiative will aim to:

  • Increase awareness of the unique abilities of Veteran students.
  • Enhance the educational experience of Veteran students through peer support, academic, and coping skills training.
  • Increase awareness of and access to various VA health and support services.
In addition to the mental health services available to student Veterans, VITAL offers special educational workshops to faculty and staff. It is part of CCBC’s continued effort to aid in the academic success of student Veterans.

CCBC is also recognized as a “military friendly” college by which highlights colleges, universities and trade schools for offering military students the best services, programs, discounts, scholarships, clubs, networking and staff.
