Leadership that understands because they’ve been there.
Only a veteran can understand the issues, challenges, and experiences of other veterans. Which is why we’re proud to have Martin Dinan as our Director of Veteran Enrollment, a combat veteran of the U.S. Army. In addition to helping veterans when they come to Saint Rose as students, our Veteran Enrollment staff helps prospective students through the admissions process, advocating for them when necessary.
Veterans bring a strong sense of teamwork and a strong sense of something bigger than themselves. They learn that there’s just something bigger out there – whether it’s the country, whether it’s pride of having served.”Marty Dinan, COL, USA (Ret),
Director of Veteran Recruitment & Enrollment
Not only does Marty love the veterans who come to Saint Rose as part of their shift into civilian life, he understands them. He’s a veteran of three wars, deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991 with later deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. He was promoted to Colonel in the New York Army National Guard in 2013. He spent 19 years as a police officer, all while serving as a commissioned officer in various command and staff positions. He’s served in the active Army, the Reserves and the National Guard.
