About Us

The UT Dallas Military and Veteran Center (MVC) provides resources and support for veterans and military-affiliated students.The MVC has four goals:

  • Foster community among students during their transition to campus life and with the UTD alumni veteran network.
  • 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.

Military-affiliated students include veterans, current military service members (Active/Guard/Reserve), military spouses and dependents, and ROTC cadets.


UT Dallas will be a nationally recognized school of choice for veterans. The MVC will be the benchmark for military-affiliated services and programs in Student Affairs.
