The Seattle University Veteran’s Community's (SUVC) mission is to serve and of support all student-veterans and members of military families.


SUVC’s vision is to develop and implement student programming, both social and educational, and recognize that student-veterans have unique needs and interests that differ from those of traditional students.


  • To be the single source for all information related to student-veteran life
  • Be an advocate for the student-veteran community at large
  • Provide personalized assistance for student needs (veteran related or not)
  • Maintain direct connections with those managing student-veteran lives on campus
  • Bringing awareness of student-veteran issues to the faculty, staff and the general student community
