Director's Welcome

On behalf of UT Tyler's military-affiliated student community, welcome to YOUR Military & Veterans Success Center! The MVSC exists to support you in your transition to and through our academic community. We are here as both a resource for your success, and an advocate to resolve any problems you may have. We provide service and resources to all military-affiliated students, including active duty, Reservists, and National Guard members, as well as spouses and children of service members and veterans.

We look forward to seeing you in the MVSC and around campus!

The MVSC offers:

  • Student Support

The military affiliated student community at UT Tyler is grateful for the ongoing support of the below organizations. For information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact University Advancement.

Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation

The Texas Wounded Warrior Foundation focuses on providing help to wounded warriors who live in Texas. Over the last twelve years, the Foundation's Pro-Am golf tournaments have evolved into a long weekend involving 25-30 injured warriors annually and providing many opportunities for good food and R&R in Tyler. Texas golf Pro-Ams are also held in Amarillo and Horseshoe Bay.  Retreats with a spiritual emphasis are held twice a year benefiting the warriors and their families. An annual golf school is held in San Antonio with participants from the Warrior and Family Support Center at Brooke Army Medical Center.
