UVa Mil Vet’s History
In the Fall of 2013 the Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights (EOCR) at the University of Virginia (UVA) sponsored a Veterans Day celebration to honor military veterans on Grounds. From this initial networking event a group of veterans volunteered to form a leadership advisory group that would organize a long term support and networking group on Grounds for all UVA military service veterans. The University of Virginia Military Veterans Community, otherwise known as UVA Mil Vets, was established with members from a significant cross-section of Academic and Medical Center faculty and staff. UVA Mil Vets is currently working to better understand the needs of veterans on Grounds and engaging in membership recruitment.
