Abstract
  
 2/23/2015State System universities offer wide range of services to military members, veterans and their families
​Twenty-two thousand. That’s the number of pushups California University of Pennsylvania students did over the last approximately four weeks to raise awareness about the rising tide of military suicides. They gathered every day at 11:22 a.m. on the campus Quad to complete the exercise, regardless of the weather. Every fall, the campus is adorned with banners recognizing military members and veterans for their service. These are just two examples of how the university honors those who serve the nation in all branches of the armed forces. But its commitment goes much deeper than that, as does that of the other 13 universities that comprise Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education.
