Phillip ButcherPhillip Butcher is the Director of Transfer Admissions and Veteran Services. Butcher is a U.S. Air Force veteran who served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He received his Bachelor of Business Administration degree in marketing from the University of Houston in 2009.

“I remember all of the confusion I had when I separated from the military and began attending school —the head-in-the-clouds feeling of not always knowing what to do next or where to go. I want to make sure that other veterans have more information so that they can take full advantage of their benefits.”
