What We Do


The Aurora Foundation assists colleges and universities to help veterans who enter the scholastic environment graduate from college and enter the workforce. We envision this as a transition from “Boots to Books to Business.” Our programs and partnerships are all structured under each phase of this transition, working with others who support our military men and women in uniform as well as those in higher education who are dedicated to providing a veteran-friendly campus with resources that enable veteran students to succeed.

Spotlight of the Month

Every now and then, a piece of art will cause us to stop and think about the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform.  The generation of military service members returning from OIF and OEF come home to a grateful nation, but the men and women from Vietnam-era America did not receive the same welcome.  This video helps capture the gratitude of a nation for the Vietnam generation, and encompasses just how much it means when we tell our military "thank you."

A special thanks to COL (Ret.) Don Cook, US Army for sending this video to Aurora!
