Student Veteran Organizations

The following student organizations, in addition to 600+ other clubs on campus, may be of particular interest to our Student Veterans:

Carolina Student Veterans of America (CSVA): The CSVA is UNC's chapter of the Student Veterans of America. The CSVA is a student-run organization that seeks to provide veteran and military connected students with the resources, opportunities, and support to help they need for a successful transition to the university, and to thrive in their Carolina careers.

The CSVA welcomes all undergraduate, graduate and professional school student veterans and their families. We work to provide opportunities for student veterans to meet and socialize with other Carolina students, get involved in campus life, and make the most of their Chapel Hill experience while giving back to the community. The CSVA, in conjunction with the Carolina Veterans Resource Center and the Dean of Students, also serves as an advocate for student veteran awareness and wellbeing across the University. For more information visit the CSVA Heel Life page and independent website, or email the CSVA at carolinavets.sva@gmail.com. You can follow the CSVA @UNC_SVA.

Military Affiliated Graduate Students: Supported by the Graduate School's Diversity and Student Success Program, MAGS provides numerous opportunities and resources for military-connected graduate students to aid in their academic success and to build community. These include onboarding for new military-affiliated graduate students, professional and skills development workshops, and community-building activities and events.

Veterans Advocacy Legal Organization: The Veterans Advocacy Legal Organization (VALOR) is a student group at the UNC School of Law that will offer pro bono legal services to Veterans, assisting them in securing the military benefits which their prior service for our country entitles them to. The objective of our organization is two-fold: first, to provide pro bono legal services to Veterans; second, to educate the Carolina Law student body on legal issues that affect Veterans and their families. 

Kenan-Flagler Military Veterans Club: The Military Veterans Club is an organization for military and government service veterans and those who support them.  We exist to provide outreach and advice to service members who are MBA applicants, transition and professional assistance for currently enrolled veterans, and networking and camaraderie for all veteran students of not only UNC Kenan - Flagler but the UNC community in general.

Military Medicine Interest Group: The Military Medicine Interest Group (MIG) is designed to support medical students either affiliated with or interested in military medicine. These students include those who are affiliated with the Army, Navy, or Air Force-funded Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) or the Army National Guard-sponsored AMEDD Student Recruiter program and those who are exploring military residency and career opportunities.
