The journey towards a resource center for military related students began as a collaborative effort between the Veterans Advisory Council to the Chancellor, comprised of UWM faculty and staff, and the UWM chapter of the Student Veterans of America.
Each group recognized the unique experiences service members and their families bring to the UWM campus and Milwaukee community, as well as the potential barriers that impede the transition process from the military into the civilian world.
Opened in November of 2012, the Military and Veterans Resource Center (MAVRC) works to address the challenges faced by current and former service members and their dependents. MAVRC is committed to assisting the military related students at UWM in completing successful transitions from the military, through their education and into the civilian workplace.
