Georgetown University’s Military and Veterans’ Resource Center serves military-connected students as they apply to, attend and advance beyond Georgetown. The Hilltop is home to over 1,200 military-connected students, including service members, veterans, and military families. Our office serves as a liaison and advisor to ensure prospective and current military students receive accurate and comprehensive information about admissions, finances, academic support, career networking, and support services.
The Mission of the Georgetown Military and Veterans’ Resource Center is to support military-connected students by removing barriers to entry and providing the necessary support services to successfully navigate the military-to-civilian transition.
Our vision is to operationalize the Jesuit values of Cura Personalis to foster a vibrant, military-inclusive campus community.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement
As a student resource and support office under the Division of Student Affairs, the Military and Veterans’ Resource Center (MAVRC) is committed to fostering and maintaining an environment where military-connected students, and the greater campus community, can become the best version of themselves. The MAVRC works with students directly through advising, connection to resources, programming and events, alumni engagement, and research and assessment. In living out these commitments, the MAVRC embraces students, staff, and faculty from all backgrounds and identities. This includes racial, ethnic, sexual, and gender identities, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religious/spiritual identity, immigration status, indigenous heritage, disability status, age, and military affiliation/veteran status.
The Post-9/11 military-connected student population is the most diverse cohort in American history. As such, there is a myriad of identities and experiences that intersect with being a military-connected student. This unique intersectionality calls us to be mindful of our military-connected students’ individual needs, the types of support services we offer, and deliberate in how the MAVRC advocates and facilitates change. We are committed to seeking and receiving feedback from the military-connected students we serve. Therefore, please feel free to reach out and share your thoughts on how the MAVRC can better address our military-connected students’ individual needs.
If you have questions about admissions, making the civilian-to-military transition, partnering with the MAVRC, or anything relevant to military-connected students, consider a one-on-one appointment with MAVRC staff or the Director. Appointments are generally held virtually and you don’t have to be committed to Georgetown for an advising session.
Newly-admitted students are encouraged to join the MAVRC on Campus Groups–the University’s engagement platform. The MAVRC will communicate relevant events, scholarships, and opportunities to currently enrolled military-connected students via Campus Groups.
The Georgetown Military Network (GMN) provides the space to connect Georgetown students and alumni service members, veterans, and military families for mentoring transition, and career development opportunities. Connections can include alumni to student, alumni to alumni, and student to student to enrich our Georgetown Military and Veteran Hoya community.
