A Message from the MVC: Living Our Values

The Military and Veteran Center (MVC) acknowledges recent events and affirms our commitment to supporting military-affiliated students and their families. We stand by those who have experienced racial injustice and we hold fast to the values of respect and equality. The MVC intentionally works to provide a welcoming environment on campus and we appreciate that UT Dallas leadership is supportive of the mission to serve those who have served! We will continue to promote community, inclusiveness and diversity. Please read our statement of support for Black and African American students from the UT Dallas President and the Vice President for Student Affairs.

The MVC joins the UT Dallas President and Vice President for Student Affairs in supporting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and condemning violent and discriminatory acts. UT Dallas has a myriad of offices available for students to utilize including the Student Counseling Center, the Multicultural Center, and Galerstein Gender Center.

About Us

  • Honor military service within the UTD community and recognize academic achievements.
  • Connect students to the resources, services and programs they need to be successful at UT Dallas and beyond.
  • Inform/educate the campus, community and prospective students.


The Military and Veteran Center (MVC) provides comprehensive support for military-affiliated students, from admission through graduation, to facilitate achievement of academic and career goals.
