Mr. Sean Martin assists the five goal mission of the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center by means of “Encourage, Educate, and Expand” as the Transition Manager.  Sean seeks to bring future and current students opportunities and information on how to successfully traverse the academic environment as a military-benefit user here at MTSU, be it prior learning assessments or discussion of current issues experienced as a student. As a 2016 MTSU military-veteran graduate, Sean carries experience and firsthand knowledge of the MTSU campus and programs as well as state policy focused on student-veterans.

Mr. Martin graduated from Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Sociology. During his undergraduate years, Sean was the only student-veteran to serve as a seated member on Governor Haslam’s Veteran Education Task Force—the task force charged with developing state initiatives and programming to ensure Tennessee is the state of choice for veterans and their families for higher education. Prior to his academics, Sean served with the Marine Corps from 2005-2009 as a communications operator and police transition team advisor when deployed forward to Iraq. Both he and his fiancé, Emily, live in Nashville and both enjoy the outdoors, live music, and assisting those in need in any way they can.
