The Luke Joseph Ryan Veterans Center

The new Luke Joseph Ryan Veterans Center is located in a remodeled section of the Katharine L. Boyd Library.

The center is dedicated to the memory of Luke Joseph Ryan. Luke was a navy serviceman whose life and military career ended much too soon. The center honors his memory and serves as a tribute to the Ryan family tradition of military service that is representative of all five branches of the armed forces. Luke’s father, Luke Patrick Ryan, was a Navy SEAL. His grandfather, Colonel Robert J. Ryan, MD, was an Army surgeon who also served in the Marine Corps. All four of Luke’s uncles proudly served active duty in the US military.

The Veterans Center can provide information and assistance to students applying for VA education benefits.
