CAMPUS DEVELOPMENT The development of the St. Michael’s Veterans Center campus represents a great public-private
partnership. A proven team of private firms and community partners, each of whom had the
experience and dedication to successfully design and complete an undertaking of this scope and
purpose, came together for a single purpose.
City, State and Federal agencies played not just key roles, but indispensable roles in visioning, coordinating, funding and implementing viable, long range solutions for the unmet needs of those who served in our country’s military.
