UNA Military and Veteran Alliance
Supporting the Community!
The UNA MVA participates in community events as well as campus events. In this picture, the group was participating in the Hydrate the Homeless event at Wilson Park in Downtown Florence.
As a active chapter in the Student Veterans of America national organization, we also attend leadership summits as well as network with numerous companies in order to better our campus and community.
Last year, we organized a paintball tournament which was open to the UNA campus. It was a HUGE success and we plan to have more exciting events in the future!
The UNA Military and Veteran Alliance was originally created in 2011 by our advisor, Wayne Bergeron, due to the lack of support that the military and veteran students had. However, we have made a lot of great and exciting changes on the University of North Alabama campus since 2014 and we plan to do even more. We welcome any and all new inspiring members! We want to make sure that our voices are continually heard on this campus and in the community.
The purpose of the UNA Military and Veteran Alliance is:
a. To foster academic, social, and professional growth;
b. To provide an environment where veterans can share their experiences, receive support, and assist each other;
c. To develop better public understanding and appreciation of veteran experiences;
d. To improve veteran college students as a community network as well as individuals;
e. To morally and ethically uphold our individual oaths as veterans that, together, we have sworn as a community.
f. To promote friendly relations between students, faculty, and veteran college students.
