The Student Veterans of Xavier are dedicated to helping Veterans and dependents transition from the military lifestyle into the college lifestyle. The club is open to veterans, those currently serving in the armed forces, veteran dependents, and any student who wants to support veterans. SVX aims to create a fellowship of like-minded individuals, to promote a network of students and successful alumni, and to provide professional and leadership development for all of its members.
"Our mission is to assist our fellow veterans and dependents during transition, support them in their academics, and provide a veterans organization continuing our tradition of service to each other and our community."
The Student employment team is a group of Veteran and Military connected students who have a desire to support their fellow peers through two primary functions: peer outreach and collaboration with other offices/resources on campus and in the community.
The Student Veterans Center has launched a monthly initiative to select a Student Veteran of the Month. Staff, faculty, and fellow students are eligible nominate a Student Veteran. Any Student Veteran is eligible for nomination. At the end of each month, the Student Veterans Center staff will review nominations and announce the winner, with a photograph and biography of the individual on the Student Veterans Center website. We know that each of our Veterans has a unique story and are a valuable asset to Xavier University. We look forward to honoring and celebrating them throughout the 2018-2019 school year.
