We provide student veterans, active duty military, their families and the surrounding community with advocacy, resources, support and the opportunity to be successful. We offer transitional tools for veterans to be successful on their path back into civilian workplaces.

PCC considers it an honor to provide resources for the self-sacrificing service given to our country by U.S. military service members. Rock Creek shows that gratitude through the Veteran Resource Center, the Veterans Education Benefits Office, and the services they deliver to the military community. Thank you for your service.
