About Us

History and Mission

The mission of the Student Veterans Group is to provide fellowship for student veterans, to support new student veterans in coordination with the Liberty University Office of Military Affairs, and to create veteran-oriented Christian service opportunities. The veterans organization is a member of Student Veterans of America, enabling Liberty veterans to support student veterans in the local community and at other schools around the nation.

SVG Goals

  • To provide fellowship for veterans within the Liberty University community and the local community
  • To work alongside Students Behind our Servicemembers in their efforts to support deployed service members and their families
  • To support new student veterans in coordination with the Office of Military Affairs
  • To provide services to veterans in the local community

Who Can Join?

The Student Veterans Group is open to student veterans who have served in the U.S. Armed Services and have been deployed on Active Duty, in the National Guard, or in the Reserves. Students who are actively involved in the National Guard and Reserves but have not been deployed are welcome and can learn from the experiences of the group’s veterans. However, leadership roles within SVG are restricted to veterans who have been deployed. Faculty and staff members of Liberty University who are veterans are encouraged to get involved in the group as well. Veterans will be requested to present a DD-214 for verification.

Please contact us at for more information on the opportunities available through Student Veterans Group (SVG).

"A veteran - whether Active Duty, Retired, National Guard or Reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." - That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it."
