Director of Military Outreach Michael Farnum brings his own vast experience—with the military community and with PLU—to his position in the Office of Admission. In 2010, he founded the VetCorps position at PLU to serve enlisted military personnel—along with veterans, dependents and spouses of military-affiliated personnel.
Farnum is responsible for increasing PLU’s engagement with current and prospective military and veteran communities, increasing enrollment of military-affiliated students while ensuring that PLU provides broad and high-quality service to these students and coordinating PLU’s current veterans services. Among those: dedicated academic advising, financial-aid specialists experienced with veteran-benefits programs, dedicated orientation and on-boarding for new military students, and two VetCorps liaisons.
