Decorated combat vet to lead UConn’s veterans programs
The school says U.S. Army Maj. Alyssa Kelleher will start her new role on June 10.
Kelleher is a two-time Bronze Star medal recipient who served on active duty in Afghanistan and at Fort Drum, New York. Most recently, she was a human resources manager for the Connecticut National Guard and commander of the Officer Candidate School at its 1/169th Regional Training Institute.
Kelleher was an Army ROTC cadet while at UConn. She graduated magna cum laude in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in political science.
The school established its Office of Veterans Affairs and Military Programs in early 2013 to provide one-stop assistance for military-connected students.
