Military & Veterans Ball

When the Military & Veterans Resource Center (MAVRC) was established in 2012 to serve the several hundred veterans, dependents, reservists, Guard members and ROTC student population attending UW-Milwaukee we had no idea UWM would come to have the largest military-related student population in the Midwest today, despite no major military installation in the area!

To better serve our students transitioning from military to civilian, to academic life, we offer more than academic services. MAVRC partners closely with community organizations and corporate partners to serve the whole-life needs of the military-related student through programming and events.

Our signature event is the Annual Military & Veterans Ball held at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center. This event kicks off our Veterans Week activities and this year the ball will place on Friday, November 11, 2022. This event is open to all military-related students in the SE Wisconsin area, alumni, and military supporters.
