Liberty University is committed to serve our military student population in achieving their educational goals as well as providing an atmosphere of camaraderie and support for other unique needs. There are several upcoming events that we invite you to be a part of whether you are a current service member, veteran, military spouse or military dependent.
The Liberty University Office of Military Affairs invites all graduating Liberty service members, veterans, and military spouses, as well as military faculty and staff members to the Military Graduate Recognition Ceremony.
The ceremony will be presided over by Dr. Ronald Hawkins, vice president for academic affairs and vice provost at Liberty. All graduating service members and veterans will be presented with a Challenge Coin, a cherished tradition at Liberty University.
Retired Maj. Gen. Robert F. Dees, U.S. Army, will deliver the keynote address. Gen. Dees served for more than 35 years in the United States Armed Forces in a variety of command and staff positions. Gen. Dees retired with numerous honors and awards in 2003, and now serves as Liberty’s associate vice president of military outreach.
It is fitting that our military graduates will be recognized on May 9, Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Military spouses provide tremendous support to our service members and are an integral part of military families. All military spouses in attendance will be honored for the vital service they provide to this country. All graduating military spouses will be given a separate gift of congratulations.
The entire Liberty family is proud of the 2014 military graduates and their commitment to serving our nation. We continue to pray for the safety of our men and women in uniform and for the families who support them.
The Institute for Veterans Education and Training (IVET) is offering a free five-day course for military students at Liberty University. The iTAP 2.0 program is designed to help veterans transition from military to civilian life while preparing them for long-term employment and job placement. This helpful training typically costs approximately $3,500 but is being provided to veterans free of charge. This is a great opportunity to take charge of your future. Space is limited to the first 40 veterans, so register now to secure your place in this valuable program.
The Liberty University Institute for Military Resilience offers free webinars to educate our nation on the needs of our service members and veterans. Previous webinars include; Faith-based Solutions for the Needs of the Hour, Battlefront to Home Front & from Military to Civilian, Resilient Military Marriage & Family, and Being a Military Friendly Church.
