America is the land of the free because of the brave. When soldiers go to war and put themselves in harm’s way – they may come back wounded. Understanding the unique needs of military service members, veterans, and their families, Liberty University established the Institute for Military Resilience (IMR) as a center of excellence for military outreach.

IMR is impacting the lives of service members and families through:
Establishing relevant, faith-based curriculum
Tackling issues, causes, treatments and prevention pertaining to military combat
Encouraging spouses and families dealing with the reality of military life

“The first week of [MILT 275] set me afire again with knowing that God is calling me to make a difference in the lives of these brave men and women that have selflessly served to keep me and my family free.”
Liberty has enabled me through its online programs to complete both my Bachelor's and Master's degree. As a military wife I have moved overseas and stateside many times but LU has always been one of the constants in my life. Torie Pendleton
