At Stephens College, we empower women Warriors.

Every American veteran deserves our gratitude, respect and support. But we know that women veterans, in particular, often face unique challenges. That's why we created Mission Promise Kept: to empower women veterans to earn college degrees, achieve personal success and attain financial independence.

Mission Promise Kept is the first comprehensive college program designed to meet the full spectrum of living and learning needs of women veterans. Participants and their children will live in newly renovated on-campus apartments and receive the wraparound supports they need to thrive through a coordinated network of programs and services. 

On Friday, April 12th, 2024, Mission Promise Kept (led by Executive Director Elizabeth Herrera) and Stephens College celebrated the grand opening of a new resource center for veterans on campus with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Center of Excellence for Veteran Success will serve veterans of all genders, providing a place to gather, study and share their experiences.
