The Military Support Colleges of Distinction list recognizes schools that engage in initiatives directed toward active-duty and veteran students, including educational benefits, a dedicated military and veteran department, flexible educational options, campus activities and community support.

UNF’s Military and Veterans Resource Center serves as the primary point of contact for active-duty military, veterans and their family members on campus. The center is committed to ensuring that military-connected students successfully make the transition from the military environment to campus life and are assisted in their progress toward completing their academic degrees. The MVRC also serves as a resource to veteran employees, providing guidance and referrals to assist with coaching, mentoring and integration into the campus community.
