Harvard College Veterans Engagement Initiative
The overarching goal of HCVEI is to unite veterans, Harvard students, and community members in public service.
HCVEI works to achieve this goal in four main ways, by:
1. Increasing student awareness of the fact that veterans are assets, not charity cases, and want to hear "we still need you" as well as "thank you";
2. Facilitating student involvement in organizations that help as well as challenge and engage veterans, like The Mission Continues and The Real Warriors Campaign, in order to support veterans' efforts to contribute to the wellbeing of our society;
3. Creating a more veteran-friendly environment on campus by connecting veterans with undergraduates through the common goal of service;
4. Hosting service projects throughout the year in Cambridge and Boston that bring together veterans and non-veterans alike.
